Apologies to the good folk out there who have been slipping off the edge of their seats in anticipation of my usual weekend essay. I’m packing it in for the Early Buddhist monastic year.
In a few days I’ll be leaving Sydney for the Blue Mountains, a short three-day’s walk away, to make preparations for my annual Rain’s Retreat in a mountain cave of undisclosed location.
If you’d like to catch me before I leave Sydney, then please come to Pal Buddhist School in Canley Vale this Sunday evening or the Metta Centre in Bankstown this Tuesday evening.
I’ll also be doing meditations and Q&A sessions in the Blue Mountains for the first two months of my three month retreat. The dates haven’t been settled, but shall be posted onto the events page as soon as they are.
Or else, you might consider coming to our Kathina celebration on Sunday 12 November, where I will reveal the secrets gleaned from the bosom of the cosmos during my retreat to kick off the monastic new year. I’ll be officially seven years old as a monk.
See events page for all the details.
Other than that … Try not to let the decline of civilisation upset you while I’m away.
