Bhante Khmakumara once also was member, known as "nitthuracitta" here. His meeting and going forth and walk-about. Now, since longer, one of the last Pabbajitos in this world, hard to ever meet.

It's good, it's conductive, to do much cleaning of mind here under this topic, using the Sangha as object. And it's good to counter-act stingyness in regard of family (relay-tion), as it would hinder Jhana, path and fruits.

As Bhante Santacitto, today possible 64 year old and still going after the holly live, appeared to be mentioned special.

It would be very sad and not conductive, if any Venerable would have been, would be, or will be unattentive or careless overseen, not pleasing approached, not given proper place and offered possible shareable support.

Maybe mor up-to-date:

Image.

If not confusing, he once was long term abbot of the Ajahn Chah monastry in Switzerland, Dhammapala (if rightly remembering, or similar), then quited, seeing at this time, that less to gain with entertaining, but possible still trapped in like-a-like.

Venerable Grandfather doesn't look well at all!, and good if pulled back into better lands for the holly life. Maybe a good day, Bhantes rebirth-reminder-day, to invite Ajahn right today, to here and/or further, if one inspired.

His signatur: "We had the experience but missed the meaning."

Thanks, Venerable :anjali:

As for Bhante Khmakumara, is there any way to confirm that he and the "nitthuracitta" of DWT are one and the same?

How could one left DW and gone forth be ever the same... but yes, good householder (he could trace it via the given links before).

Just in case of Bhante Santacitto, the second picture and info is wrongly from another Ven. and he remains merely unknown.

As he also, praiseworthy, counts Members of other afflictions, he maybe likes to add good Grandfather Jieshi Shan, Zen-priest from Brazil.

Good householder might like to add Bhante Chanh Dao (?), having come across here ( viewtopic.php?p=570697#p570697 ) at his fellows Maha-DW-Sangha-relict-shrine.

And Bhante (?) Suranga, from down in the same topic.

He did the holly way twice, good householder. It would be hard to figure out whether all those still wear robes, or had abound the at the time of breaking up of the body. In that manner, maybe good to add also Nyom James (the big), as it's thought for joyful reflections of skilful undertakings, deeds, right, much more worthy for sacrifices then buildings (which have no goodness at all).

Thanks for explanation, Venerable.

However, listing forum members with intentional temporary ordinations is beyond the scope of this thread, unless that member happened to be ordained at some point during his/her active presence on DWT. Termination of sangha-hood due to a variety of reasons after intended-permanent ordination is a different matter.

As your like to give into a worthy and more living shrine, good householder ?. It could grow to a garland for the mind of those who nurished and gave dwellings for them.

Maybe not given much a search after femal recluse for possible decoration purpose of the mind, and "Ayya" might help for searches.

I noticed I forgot to add her to the Dhamma Wheel Memorial thread, so I'll do that now.
