Happy Internet Day

The Internet can resume its frenetic perambulations around me, the centre of the cyber universe. (I also think I'm God).

No, seriously, Internet is back up here, and I'm sure all of my ardent fans (Mom, Dad and Alexandar H) are happy to hear it.

A wonderful surprise last night; not one, but two applicants for monk ordination at our centre. The plan as it stands is to ordain them as novices for the rainy season and then travel to Thailand for the full monk ordination at the end of the year. This is according to the Vinaya, which recommends a four month novitiacy for heretics who wish to ordain (we're all heretics in this neck of the woods...)

Stay tuned for more good news, including a potential 12-room meditator residence going up at Wat Thai in the next few months.
