Australian story!

Post by SarathW »

Australian story!
The following video is about a person who migrated to Australia when he was five years old. Then he became an electrician and met his wife (appears to be a Westerner) and had two children. It appears Ven. Bodhidhamma (ordination name) as a lay young person had exposure to many things such as drugs and he still felt the emptiness in his pursuit. The strange though it was a wonderful part of this story is the resilient of his former wife and the mothering law even for some extent his mothers' reaction to this new life.
The video is in Sinhalese and some parts are translated to English.

If you came to Australia, you could develop an Australian accent like him.

There is always an official executioner. If you try to take his place, It is like trying to be a master carpenter and cutting wood. If you try to cut wood like a master carpenter, you will only hurt your hand.

It appears. His preceptor who got a big following is in Sri Lanka and Australia.
Perhaps he might come back to Australia.
