  1. Greetings, Bhante!
    May I ask, where in Sri Lanka will you be spending your Vassana? Will the teaching/retreat schedule and application method be put up on this page closer to the date?
    May your journey in sansara be very short!

  2. Dear Bhante
    Are there any details for Romania retreat in July?
    Is it open for registration for people from other countries apart of Romania
    Thank you

  3. Dear Bhante Rahula,
    I was elated to read your blog. I met you only once - when I attended a retreat at the Bhavana Society about 6 years ago. I have asked many people your whereabouts and they could only tell me that you are traveling. After reading "One Night Shelter," I am not surprised at all about the life you have chosen. Like the Buddha who was not bound by tradition and views, you have chosen to be inspired by the Sangha who chose to live in solitude and practice the dhamma. I wish you the Veeriya and good health to pursue the real happiness you seek. Sadhu Sadhu.
