Meal Offerings / Visiting Venerables
While there’s not as much seclusion as when wandering, having an easily accessible campsite does have its perks – friends have been visiting regularly to offer food, supplies, and support. See here is Bhante Sumano with Lusiana and her son Justin. They even brought the table the food was offered on!
We also received a two day visit from Tan Santi, who is traveling before spending vassa at the Indonesian Buddhist Family vihara in Queens, NYC. He and Tahn Pamutto overlapped there during the pandemic, and he has also spent time with everyone while at Empty Cloud Monastery in NJ.
