Sangham saranam gacchami

Sitting here on the Staten Island Ferry waiting to return to Manhattan I am feeling tremendous gratitude forthe bhikkhuscan only reflect on my good fortune to have been able to have spent the day with a bhikkhus and upasakas worth whom I spent the day. Frankly,  I don’t quite know how to organize my thoughts nor do I know how to articulate then at present. Suffice it to say that I feel like I have finally found the kind of spiritual home for which I have been longing for years now.

Bhante Saddhasara reached out to me a few days ago in reply to a question I had about Mahamevnawa starting a center in NYC which resulted in my meeting with him and the other monks at the center. I also happened to meet a number of upasakas and upasikas who are local supporters and felt like I finally had access to a vihara that operated according to the Vinaya. In other words,  a place where my children could learn the Dhamma and see it as the Lord  Buddha had established it over 2500 years ago. Sadhu. Sadhu. Sadhu.
