Just as the Buddha spoke of suitable localities for a monk, it appears that the monk's current locality is too degenerate to provide suitable support for a properly practicing bhikkhu. If he needs a bus fare to somewhere less degenerate, I would be happy to chip in a few bucks (assuming that the site taking the transaction did not apply ludicrous fees for exchange rates etc., as some do) but would not do so, simply to keep him housed in the same degenerate locality.

Where is the monks current locality Paul?

This has already been explained in the OP. You can read his words as well as you can read mine.

Did you mean California, as a whole, is too degenerate? I would have imagined that California is the state which supports most Theravada monastics.

That's for the bhikkhu in question to determine - it's his life... it's got nothing to do with me.

You said it and I am just asking you to clarify your meaning. That's surely not that difficult.

Or if you do not wish things that you say to be questioned you could refrain from saying them.

It has already been explained, and I have already explained the criteria in question.

It has been explained. Not that this would stop your sealioning, of course.

Please desist from disruptive meta-discussion.

For a second time...

Greetings,

Further detail on the suitability of lodgings, locales and people etc., courtesy of the Blessed One.
AN 10.54 wrote:‘I say that there are two kinds of lodging: those you should frequent, and those you shouldn’t frequent.’ That’s what I said, but why did I say it?

Is there a reliable way to contact this monk? I may be able to help.

"An important term for meditative absorption is samadhi. We often translate that as concentration, but that can suggest a certain stiffness. Perhaps unification is a better rendition, as samadhi means to bring together. Deep samadhi isn't at all stiff. It's a process of letting go of other things and coming to a unified experience." - Bhikkhu Anālayo
