Offerings go towards simple living expenses, teaching, and future publishing of Buddhist translations and writings. A major aspect of monastic life is that monks are required to live without handling money. In the west, your offerings provide support in a culture where traditional alms rounds are not practiced for the daily meal, for example. In America, these traditions are culturally very difficult and don't work so well. Donations help venerable to live by traditional ascetic principles, and teach Buddhist philosophy and meditation in a mostly non-Buddhist culture.

Public post
My sweetheart INSISTS that I post this pic of me on my first day as a common human, with ganache cake and ice cream (two different kinds from Publix). These are the first western clothes I have worn in literally THIRTY YEARS, showing off the bruises from fighting with 100 lbs of luggage in New Orleans at 1 am. (The iron alms bowl in the background, btw, was given to me by a Mon monk back around 1994, and it was old then, allegedly previously owned by venerable Pah Auk Sayadaw himself.)

(I am still very busy this week wrangling the DMV and getting services set up to drop back into civilization, in addition to writing. I hope to have the next Q and A done this week. Internet just activated yesterday.)

THE GOAL
REACHED!
Many thanks to all of you who have helped get this off the ground in the fall of 2020 and achieve our first goal. Ultimately the goal is to become self-sufficient here in the west, and not dependent upon Buddhist immigrant communities, kind and generous as they are, but supported by people in general who can appreciate a western and iconoclastic yet still fundamentalist approach to Buddhist philosophy and practice. My plan is to continue cranking out content for you and hopefully publish more works in the future in more traditional book formats as funds allow. Be happy.
