An Ajaan at My Temple

Post by Raga Mala » Sun Nov 01, 2009 8:27 pm

Ajaan Niran, a monk at my temple, is preparing to leave and return to Thailand in a few days. His English is very poor. A conversation I had with him:

ME: Ajaan, are you happy to be going back to Thailand?

NIRAN: I...happy...and...not happy.

ME: What do you mean?

NIRAN: I happy and not happy,
