Hi Danny I've also read that Ajahn Sumedho just retired and is going back to Thailand.Do you know where and from when I can find him there? (I'm assmuing Wat Pa Pong) I have a wish to see him in person and talk with him before he finally retires from the world forever as he has been one of my biggest inspirations in life.Hope you can help.Thanks David
Thanks for the question asked about Ajahn Sumedho. It's true that he is a giant in the community of monks nowadays. Leading the monks to simplicity and finally peace he has been rendering a wonderful service to all. After retiring from holding responsibilities on one occasion he visited the Great Lakes Buddhist Vihara Detroit Michigan where I was residing in 2009. then he was staying at one our friend's place in Detroit. My friend explained to me that Ajahn expects to travel to Amaravathi again to meet Sangha over there and visit Thailand for a meeting with forest monks. However later I didn't follow his schedules contiguously. Therefore I don't know where he currently residing. I will contact my friend in Detroit and let you know. please look at this answer in two weeks.

Do not be angry to protect me
Monks, if others speak in disparagement of me, of the Dhamma or of the Sangha, you should not be angry, resentful or upset on that account. If you were to be angry or displeased at such disparagement, that would only be a hindrance to you.
If others disparage me, the Dhamma or the Sangha, then you must explain what is incorrect as being incorrect", saying: ‘That is incorrect, that is false, that is not our way, that is not found among us.’
Monks, if others speak in praise of me, of the Dhamma or of the Sangha, you should not on that account be pleased, happy or elated. If you were to be pleased, happy or elated at such praise, that would only be a hindrance to you." If others praise me, the Dhamma or the Sangha, you should acknowledge the truth of what is true, saying: ‘That is correct, that is right, that is our way, that is found among us’.
