Ten years have passed since my first trip to Amaravati Buddhist Monastery, in 2008…
I recalled the conversation between Luang Pu Chah and Luang Por Sumedho when Luang Por Sumedho replied to Luang Pu Chah that he ‘Could not return to a foreign country as there would be no Buddhists there’. Then Luang Pu Chah asked ‘Are there any goodhearted people there?’ Luang Por Sumedho answered that he thought ‘There might be’. Then Luang Pu Chah said ‘Go and live with those good-hearted people’. Good-heartedness and kindness are not dependent on education level, race or language.
