I do have to slightly update my view on monastic/lay practice

Paul Gerhards, who I met at the Portland Buddhist festival, and who has a blog, has a post that reminds me that there do exist  monks who depend for their livelihood on people who are pretty poor themselves (scroll down to the Ajahn Chah documentary parts).  Read the rest of Gerhards' post as well; his advice is good advice.

I'll have more to say on the Portland Buddhist Festival; but it did feel really good to help out the Buddhist Peace Fellowship and their efforts there, thanks to Ken Wilber's ads on this site.

Keep clickin', dear readers.  I'm doing what I said.

Greetings, Mumon. Thanks for the kind words. It was good to meet you and talk about my favorite subject. I've added you to my blog reader and will link to your site. Good stuff there. I'm sure we'll meet again around again around the wheel of life.

Thanks; the feeling is mutual. I've added you to my site as well. I'm sure we'll see each other again in the neighborhood, so to speak.
