Portrait of Ajahn Charles/ NY Prespeterian hospital/ 6 2018
On this Father’s Day I would like to honer a man who is not a father but who has been a father to many; a man who has used the martial arts and a kind heart to shape the path of right thinking and compassion to many wayward children and who is now face to face with own struggles. .
However, he has always faced the questions of life with unique and inspiring bravery. And although he is not Buddhist I am proud to call him Ajahn (teacher). And so, as I would honer the Buddha or any being on the compassionate path, I bow and say to you Ajahn: Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu!
