Venerable Sumano has been kind enough to set up a new instagram for Upavana under the name upavanaorg. It can be found with the link in the footer as well as here: https://www.instagram.com/upavanaorg/
If you want to catch glimpses of what the monastics are up to this is a good place to look. The summer has been fairly inhospitable to human life, with a repetitive cycle of intense heat and intense rain. So there hasn’t been much in the way of wandering or taking advantage of the beautiful natural surroundings.
What’s harder to quantify in terms of words or images is the ongoing practice and discussion of dhamma. The monastics have been gathering every morning for meditation and chanting, reviewing suttas, practicing for ordination, and studying the monastic rules intently.
Online programs and local meditations continue!
