Nandaka, Malaysia

Hello DhammaWheel,
I haven't posted in a couple of years (as Internet access was minimal or non-existent in the last couple of monasteries I stayed in), however I have a little more ability to post now. I'm in a Monastery called Nandaka, near Penang, Malaysia. Here are a few photos taken here (and please forgive me if they don't appear rotated properly):

Me in front of the "Sima Hall":

Have you been to Brickfields Vihara and have you met Bhante Punnaji there?

No offense, Saengnapha, but please look at Nandaka's website, which I linked to above. The senior monk here is Bhante Dhammasubho.

No and no. I'm laying pretty low here in Penang. I did have a look at their website, however. Thanks for mentioning them. Do you have a personal connection there?

Yes, Ven. Punnaji is a teacher but more like a kalyana-mitta of mine. I have had the good fortune of knowing him for about 20 years now.

He's about 340 km away from me in Kuala Lampur. But I do none the less appreciate any personal references. The Buddhist World can be quite small.
