Happy Birthday Venerable!!! :smile: :bow:
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Happy Birthday Bhante!
Hope you recieve an appropriate amount of attention but not too much!
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Kathin(a) at Wat Thewasangkharam (Kanchanaburi,Thailand) happened to coincide today as well...the heavy parts (ceremonies in the bot) I was unable to shoot (inappropriate), much as I would like to share...

Happy Birthday Bhante!

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

well established, restrained

always centered, the monk
