Sunrise over the Irriwaddy River and the monks dharma hall at Kyaswa Monastery. Ma Kamala and me just before I disrobed. Ma Kamala radiating loving kindness. A small well tended Buddha in a pagoda near the road leading to Bagan.

The weather is horrible here on Judevine Mountain.
It's dark and cold all winter. Every day, rain and snow
beat on your head, and the sun never shines. Then
it's spring and more rain, and ice and mud too. And
after that, the black flies eat you alive, and then the
deer flies, and then the mosquitoes, and then it's fall
before you even noticed it was summer. Then there
might be a couple of weeks of decent weather and
then it starts to rain and snow again. It's just awful
living here. I don't think you'd like it here at all.
You'd better find your own miserable place to live.
