I am very glad to hear that he will be well enough to return to moderating duties next week. :jumping:

I have greatly missed his presence in these forums! :cry:

Bhante,

A heartfelt welcome back.

Reminds me of a talk I heard somewhere about a patient who goes to the doctor with a correct perspective on illness. He says: "Doctor, there's something right with me. I'm sick again."

Very glad to hear you are on the mend.

And if you'll pardon a small half-tongue-in-cheek observation: Hospitals are like Buddhism: We go to them to get better, but we only know we've gotten better when we get out.

Best wishes for continued recovery.

It is good to hear the good news


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

It is good to see you back, even if just for a temporary time.

The other monk had his leg amputated? Ouch! Thank goodness you will be better without that!

This is good news, thankful to hear it. May you recover fully.
I would be very interested to learn what you think about Malaria at this point. Especially how one should best prepare to deal with this issues if intending to be in Thailand for an extended period. I would appreciate your thoughts when you have the time for it.

Looking forward to that article translation also, if that ever resurfaces. I very much appreciate all of the perspective on the teachings and advice you have generously provided. Thanks again. :bow: :bow: :bow:
