One of my favorite stories of the Buddha is where the female child eating yakkha becomes a follower of the Buddha. I always was particularly interested in the stories of her interacting around or near the monastery and the monastics. I’ve heard some delightful stories as well from Ajahn Brahm and Ajahn Achalo of devas and local spirits coming to visit! As well as some stories from various lay people and monks around the internet.
So,naturally I’ve found over time I’ve gained interest in hearing the stories of monks or lay people encountering well…spirits in the monastery!
I was wondering, could we compile and possibly share reports and stories of these types of experiences then in this thread? I think they’d make a lovely and fascinating read.
