The new topic (or post/s) here are originaly from Share of merits on a dhammic walkabout ( For eventual additionally information: please visit also the Topic of origin. Anumodana!

[Original post:]

Two days ago, Bhante Johann arrived at Phnom Aural. Only one day after being informed with the help of You Y's translation that Bhante is on the way (my own earlier attempt to inform was apparently not successful/understandable), having cleaned up the Ashram with wife and son(?)/newphew(?), Upasaka Chanroth must have been surprised by the quick arrival. But he said he had already dreamed of Bhante's coming.



Two days earlier still near Phnom Srong, if understood right, Bhante must have walked very fast.
I also hear that Bhante had difficulty getting almsfood on the way, everybody being afraid of the coronavirus.
As others translated, Upasaka Chanroth told that Bhante said I should stay here until the corona panic has subsided. However long that may be. Of course there is not even much possibility to do anything else, as no taxi driver wants to go at the moment, and people in general would be wary of a foreigner who coul spread the virus.
I hope that Bhante will stay healthy there, that almsfood, drinks and medicine are not too difficult to get by. He did not carry much with him. The Sangha tablet is also still here, as well as the laptop, scanner and Dhamma books which Bhante Johann thought would be good to give here to the becoming Pali school.
Bhante Indaññano, however, said he would only accept the books. Not sure what use a scanner without books would have at the cave Ashram.
I asked Bhante Indaññano to stay here until the corona panic has subsided enough to make it possible to leave, which he accepted. Sadhu, sadhu, sahu!

I feel quite useless here.

May all be safe and well.

Asking about Bhante's and Upasaka Chanroth's wellbeing:

Moritz to Chanroth:



Chanroth's reply:


More or less okay maybe, "dhammata", Bhante probably somewhat weakened still from the strenuous journey.
May Bhante be able to receive all the necessary requisites to stay healthy.

I spoke to Bhante. He seems to be well. Using the time to repair small things around the Ashram.

"So when do you want to come to take a holiday in the cool forest?"
I told him I am ready, but others told me to wait.

He said I could come any time. Just wait until someone likes to drive up.
But no stress, nothing urgent.

So I am waiting for that. As Bang Vithou already agreed we could go to Aural together when the situation is better. Sadhu 🙏🏻
I am looking forward to it, whenever it is a good time.
