Dear friend
« on: April 25, 2007, 09:45:05 AM »
Dear friend,


Now we are almost one and a half year after I disrobed in Thailand to reurn to The Netherlands. The mean reason, as you know, for that was the fact that I couldnot pay the HIV-medication in Thailand.


In the meantime it has become very clear to me that I want to live in a Buddhist Sangha, to incorporate buddhisme more in my life and to help other people in this way.


In the mean time the cost of the medication for HIV-medication in Thailand is much lower than one year ago. Now the cost is between 1800 and 4000 Bath (1 EUR = 44.0052 THB)  each month. This is still on the longer term a serious amount. Unfortunally I have not such amount and I cannot earn it in a few years.


There is also an other possibility. Last year I went to France and I stayed a longer time in a Tibetean monastery. There it is possible to study and practise Tibetean buddhism.


My first choice is to go back to Thailand and help my teacher by setting up a meditationcenter.


In a few weeks I will make a definitive decision. But to make a good decision all opportunities and threaths have to be seen.


So this is the information I want to join with you. And I also want to ask you to react if you think you can give me some usefull advice.


I hope you will be happy today and for the rest of your life.


With Metta


The Netherlands
