    They way Ajahn Brahm Thero goes about expounding the Dhamma is absolutely brilliant, many of our Sri Lankan monks seriously need to take a leaf from his book!

    yes the people should ask for this type of Buddhist education. What the majority seem to be seeking and getting, are Chanting 'the Sri lankan Way' and pirith Nool, from our Clergy.

    His dhamma teaching is available on Youtube. Search for "Ajahn Brahm". His dhamma teaching is almost similar to our Soma thero's teaching.

    I do not think it is similar to Ven Soma Thra's teaching. The way Ajan Brahm teaches is very interesting. Yo do not feel bord a minute with Thero's stories related to what he says.
    I attended the program at BMICH today. Tehy said about 7000 participated and must THANK the organizers. Although there was such a lot of people, everything was very well organized.

    Once again, PIN SIDDAWEWA to everyone.
