Just watched the film last night and really loved it. I am curious why you choose the monastery you did instead of returning to wat pah nanachat? The reason I ask is because I am interested in ordaining and am trying to decided where to go.
May you be happy. May you be a peace. May you be free from suffering.

Main reason is Tan Ajahn Anan who is the abbot of Wat Marp Jan. I had faith in him as a teacher. WPN and WMJ are both branch monasteries of Wat Non Pah Pong in the tradition of Luang Por Chah.

Get the wanting out of waiting

What does womanhood matter at all, when the mind is concentrated well, when knowledge flows on steadily as one sees correctly into Dhamma. One to whom it might occur, ‘I am a woman’ or ‘I am a man’ or ‘I’m anything at all’ is fit for Mara to address. – SN 5.2

If they take what's yours, tell yourself that you're making it a gift.

If you see any unskillful speech (or other action) from me let me know, so I can learn from it.

It is great that you are doing well. It must be uplifting to see the start of two monasteries :twothumbsup:

It is also difficult, I am telling you... living in mud and noise and whatnot... and having evening chantings in a soaking wet tent.

But generally I have been fortunate enough to have place to escape the hassle of building.
