Ready to go, well rested, a suitcase full of 30 kg of books (good thing I'm bringing no suits) and a three-seasons monk umbrella/tent which I may have to leave behind, as it seems the monastic community of North Hollywood has given up the practice of living at the root of a tree in favour of such things as physical security, etc.
For the less avid readers, today I fly to Los Angeles for a second round teaching Satipatthana Vipassana at Wat Thai of Los Angeles.
Yesterday I asked forgiveness from my teacher, as is customary before travelling, and asked for advice as well. He taught me the 5 Samana Dhamma:
5. Setting the mind on the deathless.
Timely advice, as always. May I bring to fulfilment all of these dhamma!
