Hi Laura

I just realized I probably should have posted this under the "In Memoriam" thread, but I guess I was thinking world news. To me it is in a way, because the biography this monk wrote of his late master Achariya Mun has made a lasting impression on me. One of those stories was (turn of the century then still densely forested Jungle teeming with tigers and elephants) and Ven. Achariya Mun wandering Dhutanga (specific ascetic practice of Forest monks) and coming upon a huge elephant blocking the monks path munching on some bamboo. The A. M. then asked one of his other monks to start speaking to this elephant to let them pass by. It was one of the most touching things I have ever read. The elephant eventually moved and let them pass by unharmed. It was the manner in which he addressed the elephant...Big Brother Elephant....). Anyway, other stories of experiences with Tigers and overcoming monstrous fears and of course deep spiritual experiences. I will forever remember all that the Ven. Maha Boowa wrote in that book. He was ninety eight.

Bows

I read the same book Brigitte and was similarly impressed. I don't think you did anything wrong by creating a new thread for it. This way it will be sure to get the attention it deserves.
