Venerable Buddharakkhita is an excellent monk. And charismatic, articulate, and he has tireless energy. I met him on a fundraising trip to Australia.
His monastery is in a random village in Uganda, and he had hostility when he first opened the place. But now the community is supportive.
Quite amazing.

I met him randomly during a visit to a German monastery where I'd actually gone to meet Ajahn Brahm. He asked me how my life was going, and I told him that my job and financial situation is not secured and that I didn't know what the future holds.

He said (I paraphrase), "Life would be really boring if the future was totally known, wouldn't it?".

Wise words, went straight to my heart. :heart:

Great to know that the Uganda centre is flourishing. :anjali:
