Yes, very much. I'll be there again in three weeks and will stay for three weeks this time :D

Btw, your name suggests you are Dutch. Am I right?

Re: How do monks deal with their robes in the winter?

Thank you all for the information.

Bhante, how do you deal with it yourself? You aren't exactly living in the hottest climate :anjali:

Re: Questions about noting

I find labeling a very distracting practice myself. I started out that way and it is great if your concentrations is really weak, but I prefer just trying bare attention to what feelings (bodily and mentally) arise and cease during meditation and the rest of the day.

Re: World's shortest 'Dhamma' domain name

Some countries are very strict about the nationality of the person who requests a domain, so you're quite lucky you got a .ma address :clap: Thanks, this is true. I once tried to get a Dhamma related domain name from Canada with the extension dot ca (.ca) and I wasn't able to do so since I do not r...

Re: Is it hard to get ordained in the UK monasteries?

Hmm, I don't know about the waiting list. Last year I stayed at Cittaviveka with a few other guests. They wanted to become Anagarika's and two of them still are. So my estimation is that the chances are quite high provided you are reasonably healthy in body and mind. I also noticed on the list of re...

Re: Dana - suggested places to make donations

I want to help out with a monastery and not only donating money. As I'm not living near one would helping with maintaining their site be considered dana? :?

Re: How do monks deal with their robes in the winter?

I visited a Thai monastery up in Northern Washington, where it can get quite cold. Most just wore thick shirts underneath, along with caps and wool socks. I'm not sure if this is appropriate in Vinaya terms, but it is the common practice I think. Ah, thank you. I couldn't imagine them just not havi...

How do monks deal with their robes in the winter?

I was wondering about the following: the robes of monks are made for climates like those found in Thailand. How do monks in more moderate climates deal with the winter when snow is falling and such? :thinking: Is something extra allowed? I don't find anything helpful on this in the Patimokkha. Altho...
