Probably similar:

Namo tassa bhagavato arahato sammā-sambuddhassa

I have heard that on one occasion the Blessed One was staying near Sāvatthī at the Eastern Monastery, the palace of Migāra's mother.[1] And on that occasion, Visākhā, Migāra's mother, had some dealings with King Pasenadi Kosala that he did not settle as she had wished. So in the middle of the day she went to the Blessed One and, on arrival, having bowed down to him, sat to one side. As she was sitting there the Blessed One said to her, "Well now, Visākhā, where are you coming from in the middle of the day?"

"Just now, lord, I had some dealings with King Pasenadi Kosala that he did not settle as I had wished."

Then, on realizing the significance of that, the Blessed One on that occasion exclaimed:

All subjection to others
   is painful.
All independence
   is bliss.
What is held in common
brings suffering,
for duties are hard
to overcome.

Udana is probably found in Book 52

Small world...  :) seeing the monks face at the NGO-website, it looks like the monk from Battambang, currently dwelling and trying to gain a foothold, in the northern Monastery, who so terrible desired (so he told others) to give robes to my person but since not much interest on such and in joining his current householder undertakings here, he stopped to even great, having left the monastery shortly because quarrels with householders... (but I can be wrong...) That was, how ever, the NGO with which Nyom Yu Ban cooperated, run by serial western lay people.

As Ven. Bukri took over the whole budgets form Taiwan for years for Dhamma-Dana some 7, 8 years ago, those smaller NGOs had possible no more foundings for further projects.

The "nun" looks a little like one Upasika which took part on a Dhammaweekend here, with her "two Dhamma-children", maybe Nyom remembers, propably just similar in occupation, looking after lone children. is the Malaysian Dhammapropaganda NGO where Upasaka Yu Ban is active. The book might be found by searching "dhammananda books khmer happy married life". And all of course "sweeten" with propaganda like holding on Maha Ghosananda and worldly heroic symbols of politic.

They all do not really like, or fear my person and that might be of course a hindrance for good access to those worldly motivated societies.

Maybe better to stay simply by the Buddhas words and leave the secondary stories for those needing and desiring such.

No need, of course. Just thought to place some possibilities for others.

Good things come to good people as gift without strings by time, simply because they can let go of outwardly but still keep the good thought within their heart.

Also Upasaka Yu Ban, connected with Pa Auk lineage, political active and after "Bhikkhuni-rights". Most of all Dhamma has been already taken under control of this groups using Nuns as their servants and "social-workers". Both, Taiwan and China are very potent donors. Mahavihara, as from same roots, and the connection to Vietnam (Buddh Sovung), likewise. It's all about secularization and worldly interests advertised by services for the poor and worker class, focusing on making favors for householders. Total understandable in regard of co-depending origination and the lure of Mara.

It's an old strategy: once uprooted the honor and devotion toward Brahmas (starting by parents) a certain society, removed by what ever counts as holly and sublime, can be taken over for pure material interests and productivity. It's not out of reason, and not a little a competition that my person tries to keep a little good accessible for those fearing to get in debt by wordily bonds. This world-tendency can not be stopped but some might still have a possibility to escape timely.

Parents and Gods are simply replaced by "Ankar", governments, or in business spheres, companies, to best avoid the feeling of gratitude toward particular acts of living beings.

Nyom can be sure to live in the last buddhist Kingdom, state, (place where right view is still uphold) but that will possible change soon by outwardly pressure and the indebted situation.

Atma remembered: It (happy married life) was by Nyom Yu Ban , who runs, has run, a Dhamma-Dana Ngo in Camdodia, or in cooperation with one in Kampot. Not sure if he still is in this matter and/or reads emails. He is from Malaysia and Atma helped to contribute books many years ago, while still wearing white. Maybe he might have joy to share another time, but intentions are not for sure and worldily thinking drives one normally fast back in common pattern of thinking, gain and politics.

Malaysia, like western, modern world generally, is very corrupted by livelihood trading monks and socialistic/marxistic ideologies. Not so much living in the shadow of beloved parents but nice oncles and others who promise debtlessness when dealing with them. But to ask the Ven. ladies at Maha Panna Foundation might be also a way, since it is all connected by Pa Auk branch , ...
