Bhikkhu Samahita's Recent Google Groups Email

Post by Garrib » Thu May 10, 2018 4:40 pm

Is anyone else subscribed to this Google Group (Buddha Direct 2). Received a cryptic email this morning, and I am concerned for Ven. Samahita. Does anyone have any information about this??

Hello Mario I received the same email and I haven't heard anything else so far. I also posted about this in the lounge section...hopefully someone will be able to put our minds at ease.

I forwarded the email to Sri Lankan police - and told them that I wasn't sure if it was "real" or not...What else can we do?? I hope Bhante will give some notification soon.

Yes. This is very atypical and I agree quite concerning. I hope someone may be able to check in on his welfare

What did the email say? If it's something outrageous then probably his account got hacked.

I have an email that says:
"FW: URGENT INFO on BIO-WARFARE ATTACK

Some kind of wacky conspiracy theory... I don't think the details are relevant.

Presumably a prank or a hack...

Does anyone know of any other samples of his handwriting?

I don't know of any other handwriting samples, good thinking though - I saw some similar posts on his linkedin account. I just have a hard time understanding what would motivate a hacker/spammer to do that? Just for a laugh, I guess? Hopefully we'll get an update soon
