Nandaka, Malaysia

Post by Subharo » Tue Dec 05, 2017 10:39 am

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):

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.

Happy New Year 2018

Post by Subharo » Mon Jan 01, 2018 12:32 pm

Today we had a big event here at Nandaka. A couple hundred people came. I was the only Westerner in the whole place. A large, brass spire was installed near our Uposatha hall. A life-size, very fancy, pearlescent, white teak Buddha also got installed in the new Women's retreat center here (still under construction, didn't get photos of that), with many baskets of flower petals strewn everywhere.
I rarely take photos, however I shot some today at less awkward times. I've posted them here:

Pictures from my time at Wat Yan :buddha1:
"A virtuous monk, Kotthita my friend, should attend in an appropriate way to the five clinging-aggregates as inconstant, stressful, a disease, a cancer, an arrow, painful, an affliction, alien, a dissolution, an emptiness, not-self."
