Ah, what a life! After some difficulties in the beginning when one family didn’t like a bhikkhuni in their monastery, now several months later all is good. Most families support me and want me to be their monk in the monastery. The one family is now ok with me being there, too. I was invited to chant the invitation to the devas on Vesakha puja, when the entire village met for the ceremony at the monastery. Every morning I go on almsround. It is a poor village and we eat a lot of stuff out of the forest. Just wonderful. The Treeleaves, the fern, great. I do love the life up here and there are a bunch of dogs, some of the village and some of Tu Dhammanando. The villagers started to built a kuti for me. After about 9 month in the belltower that is a nice gesture and a clear sign that they want me to stay.
If it were possible to explode of much joy and gratitude, than I would surely explode.
