On the way back from alms, my person met Upasaka Chanroth nd his wife, back from their good deeds for their mother , having left all possessions "unprodected" for ten days, next the frequented street. "The neighbors said the house seemed like protected by the Devas, as all night there was light to see insight. But all was actually turned off, depugged...." They grow even a lot more into Dhamma the last days and are more then grateful about the "family" they had grow into by their deeds feeling most mudita with all so many had conducted. Resting and finishing the cure, they said that their mother and father may return soon.

Having given almsfood, having had much talk on Dhamma and reflections, as suddenly the sky break up and released sun after long again, my person walked up. On the half way an older Villager from the north settlement approached my person with his two grand childs, desiring to give alms-food. They then followed up. The man once visiting the Ven. monk who previous gave conditions to dwell here and rejoiced with the place and the near to Sublime beings around. Having venerated the Gems, spread a lot of metta, wished and words requesting the Devas to protect the Sangha, those who dwell here, shared his merits, the three listened to the Dhamma, good for this world and the next, and after a good while joyful returned back. Even hard to do, pain and old, he had a lot from simply following good thoughts and the good bonds between the relatives toward merits, Sila, Generosity, metta, support each other within it, increased strongly with joy in it.

May all rejoice with their merits done.

All those Devas, and their care, near and far...

People, dwelling, food, whether... a matter of Upanissaya (strong [given] condition)

Nine o'clock, still raining since yesterday when the village prister started his families ancestor fest down in the village. As the sound of preaching was growing silent my person took off for his round. Reaching the foot, not having left the forest, rain became lighter and three Upasakas (priests and devoted from the south monastery) came up, approached and gave alms, following then back up the hill (some for the first time, although always close).

After some talks on drunkeness in life, health and youth, and that which would be a refuge, after a short round of inspection, they returned back into a sunny mild day into the village.

When no Uposatha-day, Sunday or serious undertaking of merits: rain, rain, rain... all around the day.

Atma didn't share the merits of the young neighbor who provides the way up to the Ashram over his land this days yet. Some days ago, coming back from almsround, turning on his compound to go up, he took the possibility to give some tonics. Since some month, he and his neighbor, the younger brother of Upasaka Chanroth, got heavy addiced to music, karaoke, beer... starting in the morning till late in the evening. It was now a good occation to speak on the backwards and dangers of it to him. Raising issues as it might be that many people feel disturbed and angry, the addiction like drugs, the lose of reputation, wealth... he soon replayed that he had already thought of this himself and actually rejoiced on the advices.
Some days later, the crossing of his land was always through huge underwood, leaving to the street mostly total wet, the young Upasaka silenty cleared a path through the thicket, for a most dry and pleasant walk, without even mention it to anyone as he now also focuses more on usefull things, having reduced sensual excesses as well.

May many rejoice with his silently merits.

A younger couple heard some days from villagers about the remote place and took the effort to drive from Phnom Penh on motorbike to come here. Having venerated the Gems and given tonic, and other light means for hygienic, they engaged faithfull in listening the Dhamma, question and answer sessions, for good 2, 3 h and left then joyful, in company with best pleasant weather back home.

The Chanroths family she-dog, since days surely not easy to gain food, just came up alone and enjoyed a small piece of cake the Buddhaparisata left given for the animals who might come across with hunger.

May all be able to recoice with their merits done today.

Not for sure, but yes... dhammata, Nyom. Burning, burning of the eye, burning of form (color), burning with the fibre of desire. Better just a cold.

Getting wet usually means 18h+ wet in rainy season. Sometimes such lasts for a week or more, that robes would not get dry. This one is more thin and easier to get dry.

After a wet and cold night, boiling down another time to gain further dye and not waste what's given for it, collecting fallen wood to fire around, burning it to "satisfy" the eye proper.
