My Abbot is ill-please send metta

Post by Phra Chuntawongso »

If I have posted this in the wrong place then can the mods please move it.
My Abbot, Ajahn Dr. Apisit is ill, in hospital in Chaing Mai.
He has been hospitalized for a couple of months now suffering from Hep B and his kidney is shot due to taking parecetamol, before being diagnosed.
Tomorrow morning(March 1) at 7:00 am many of the Ajahns from the Fang area will be coming to the temple here to chant for Dr. Apisits health.
I would ask that perhaps you too could send metta to Dr. Apisit.
Thank you,
With metta,

consider it done, Bhante.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Hi everyone. Thankyou for your kind thoughts.
Dr Apisit remains ill in hosital, but is starting to feel a little better.
I think we will be without him here at the temple for a while yet.
Sorry I have been away for so long, but have just been getting in some practice.

That's nothing to be sorry about - it's good to hear.

Good to hear also your abbot is slowly on the mend.

Metta,
Retro. :)
