My real concern here is the prosperity of the Sasana (Sangha organisation)
In Sri Lanka many people do not respect monks.
Even if they pretend to respect the monks, they talk behind their back.
The reason is we know that many of the monks are not virtues.
Many monks break the third and the fifth precept.
So they naturally break the second and the fourth precepts.
I don't know any monk who broke the first precepts, except my village monk set fire to the forest and plant banana trees.
He must have killed lot of forest animals.
It is common for monks to eat at night. They have someone to cook for them
I am sure many of you must have read "Boken Buddha"
It is a cry for the help from a western monk.
West is pure land (New to Buddhism).
I like to see the monks in Western Countries to be an example to others.
Third world counties have the natural tendency to follow the west.
