Venerable Dhammanando away for a few days, unwell (update 3)

Postby retrofuturist » Fri Feb 06, 2009 7:21 am

Greetings everyone,

Venerable Dhammanando is feeling unwell at the moment with a recurrence of malaria and we expect that he will be offline for a few days as a result.

Please join me in wishing bhante a speedy recovery.

Dear Ajahn,

May you be safe and protected
May you be healthy and strong
May you be happy of heart and mind
May you live with ease and well-being.

Malaria? Oh no. Hope you feel better soon, Venerable Dhammanando.

"As Buddhists, we should aim to develop relationships that are not predominated by grasping and clinging. Our relationships should be characterised by the brahmaviharas of metta (loving kindness), mudita (sympathetic joy), karuna (compassion), and upekkha (equanimity)."

May you be well Bhante.

:namaste:
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

Take care Bhante, hope you're feeling well again very soon.

Malaria?!? :shock:

Does he need bugspray (from mosquitoes) and is he seeing a doctor? If you are capable of getting into contact with him, tell him he NEEDS to rest!!

Get well soon, Dhammanando!!! The world needs people like you!
