A seed sleeps in soil.
It's cold and alone, hopeless.
Until it blooms above.

Hi son

I posted the extract from the Mahanama sutta so that you could perhaps do something useful in a dhammic sense with your ability.

Many thanks,

What happened to the asura you want to evict? Is he in your house? Is he gone now?

I remember in Vinaya a monk had problems with non human being, many cures didn't help, then he went to abattoir and drunk blood, it helped and then the Buddha allowed it in similar cases. It seemed that asuras or devas in general hate and go away of disgusting, stinking, dirty things. Anyway, in a harsh situation, hope everyone have the will and found a way to bear it

Regards.

I don't think you should follow his unusual demands at all. Did you try to seek advice and help from other devas? Maybe they will understand him better than us human.

Dear Son,

How are things going? Have you evicted that asura yet?
