Venerable Dhammanando away for a few days, unwell (update 3)

Post by retrofuturist » Fri Feb 06, 2009 7:21 am

Greetings everyone,

Venerable Dhammanando is feeling unwell at the moment with a recurrence of malaria and we expect that he will be offline for a few days as a result.

Please join me in wishing bhante a speedy recovery.

Dear Ajahn,

May you be safe and protected
May you be healthy and strong
May you be happy of heart and mind
May you live with ease and well-being.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Malaria? Oh no. Hope you feel better soon, Venerable Dhammanando.

Take care Bhante, hope you're feeling well again very soon.

wishing you well Venerable

Malaria?!? :shock:

Does he need bugspray (from mosquitoes) and is he seeing a doctor? If you are capable of getting into contact with him, tell him he NEEDS to rest!!

Get well soon, Dhammanando!!! The world needs people like you!

But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.
