“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Actually, if you read his blog posts, I'm not so sure he is too enthusiastic about this project any more..

Hi Viscid,

I don't see anything in this blog suggesting that he is not. Just because he lives in a cave we shouldn't forget that he is into blogging and taking his laptop/camera around with him. If he is against 'too much meditation' (re his stay at Kanduboda, according to the blog -I am paraphrasing) maybe he does have time to organise this really amazing thing- or at least help out by what he can do via the Internet.

From my reading of the blog-Bhante Yuttadhammo is talking about twice as much sitting as walking meditation.
I teach that we should walk and sit in equal parts, i.e. 1 hour walking,followed immediately by 1 hour sitting.
Bhante also mentioned that sitting meditation was done immediately after having eaten.
Walking meditation,in my opinion is a better form of meditation to do after taking a meal.
I say this for two reasons:
1. Walking assists in digestion.
2. After eating(and Bhante implies 1 meal per day so this would be a largish meal to sustain the body for 24 hours) we tend to become sluggish and can become tired quite fast.) Walking meditation gives us energy that enables us to sit.
In regards to other things mentioned in the blog-scorpion stings can be really painfull experiences(been there, done that)
Leeches not only suck your blood,after taking their fill and falling off, the bleeding continues for some time.(been there, done that)
A monkey taking a dump on your head is probably not the best experience on the planet(not been there, done that- in this life at least) :jumping:
I wish everyone involved in this venture all the best.
