Brief Update

Just letting you all know that, if all goes according to plan, the gods willing, I will be leaving this monastery tomorrow. The original plan was to disrobe down to samanera before going, although the venerable abbot is not here at present, so I may wait till I arrive in Fremont tomorrow before making the final transition from bhikkhu (and mahathera) status. I suppose I should make a final confession and take my leave to one of the senior abbots to whom I have occasionally caused trouble with my odd mixture of strict rule-following and western heretical interpretations of Dhamma.

Also I may or may not be relatively quiet over the next several days, as I will be in a major state of transition. I'll try to keep you all posted on how things are going, and may you all be as happy as is realistically possible.
