Dear fellow practitioners and friends,
Although on most occasions I prefer to send out a link to a new talk or meditation to subscribers at Peace Beyond Suffering, to support you in your formal practice, every now and then I feel that it is a nice change to send a link to something a little more personal. Most of the people who listen to my talks via the internet have never seen the monastery where I actually live in person, and may not know much about our daily life here. But monks are also people with full lives who often live within communities, and we frequently have other wholesome projects going on as well as teaching - projects which benefit our extended communities and the environment.
Recently the webmaster and I have updated two new slideshows for the website. There is now an up-to-date Anandagiri slideshow, as well as a slideshow dedicated specifically to the process of building our Dhamma Hall last year. Please feel free to 'have a look.' In doing so you may capture a glimpse of the generosity, harmony, joy and cooperation that exist alongside quiet meditation and contemplation at Anandagiri Forest Monastery. And see the way the trees that we have planted are literally growing along with the monastery and the community.
With every best wish and much loving-kindness.
Ajahn Achalo Bhikkhu
