Monastery kitties! And books! And Aminah!
I don’t have any photographic evidence, so you’ll just have to trust my commitment to the precepts, but I can report that one of the cats got a stroke from me. There wasn’t even any bribery with food involved. Dedicated to Ven. @Akaliko.
Well the gods truly are shining upon me; I don’t have any photographic evidence, so you’ll just have to trust my commitment to the precepts, but I can report that this morning all the books got a stroke from me. There wasn’t even any bribery with food involved. Dedicated to Sr. @Nadine.
And don’t let @Aminah fool you: she is great buddies with the cat now: she sat in front of her window last night begging to be let in!
Thank goodness! People don’t often realize how much affection books need to maintain a healthy outlook.
Oooooh! That sounds wonderful.
Aminah’s good when she has a hammer to hand
Yeah, it’s a real pain because it means I have to carry around a hammer at all times in effort to make sure I don’t jeopardize the beauty of the assembly… otherwise …
Sneaking up on Aminah while she is doing the hard work in the garden!
(for any pictures of cats, I refer to @Aminah).
Some new pics …
With Anagarika Sabbamitta (which shows the horrible quality of my phone’s camera!!!):
Can’t get rid of the cats that easily!!!
Metta is an essential building block of any worthwhile monastery. Plenty here!
Just when I was about to say, “Ah, no cats.”
Suffering, suffering, suffering!
Checking out the Huy Tibetan center as a potential retreat place for the visits of Bhante Sujato and Ajahn Brahmali. It is a beautiful place with many excellent facilties.
And just when I thought I could stay out of the pictures by making them:
