The American monk Bhante Moneyya is staying with me at Vivekavana at the moment. I first met him after the Pa Auk retreat at Sasanarakkha Buddhist Sanctuary in Taiping last year, and he came and gave two talks at the temple I was looking after at the time. We have been good friends since then.
Recently he gave a talk at Bodhi Hearts Buddhist Sanctuary in Penang, where he was residing, and when he came here we spent a few hours editing it, cutting out the glitches, coughs, ums and ahs, and then I uploaded it to the Internet Archive.
In the Duration of the Buddha Sasana Bhante talks about the decline of the Buddha’s Sasana and the hopes and aspirations he has for his monk’s life, this being a personal reflection at Vesakha.
