Chill out (So, 07 Jul 2013)
Special offering at Uposata Day In every dish – whether you like it or not – there´s plenty of chili – you´ve got to take what is given… Sometimes you think now I know this kind of food or that one, maybe that one has no chili (you wished) but again and again you get […]

Flying time (So, 23 Jun 2013)
“With regard to external factors, I don’t envision any other single factor like friendship with admirable people as doing so much for a monk in training, who has not attained the heart’s goal but remains intent on the unsurpassed safety from bondage.

Knockin’ on Heaven’s door (Mi, 22 Mai 2013)
Not quite Papillon, yet A not so sweet looking caterpillar showed up in bed last night. Must have got caught in the robes while hanging outside. What appeared at first to be a nightmare´s encounter turned out to be a rather real experience. Crawling up the back in the middle of the night causing unpleasant […]
