Duuude, that is downright strange, who would sling that kind of mud? Have you angered a Republican lately?

Kudos, Ven.

Actually, the rumours I suffered through while IN Thailand make the latest seem kindergarten. Three wives, millions in the bank, I'm sure you know the rap.

Look forward to keeping up with your blog as well. All the best.

Yuttadhammo

Konchog, you still have our support despite whatever fantasies some unscrupulous person would try to assert. I will take your positive attitude as my own example for future behavior when confronted with tis sort of falsehood and hope I can find equanimity or "ataraxia" through this. Khanmdaa and I went out to KPC in MD this last weekend with a few friends, had some buuz and "salat" with Noreen, a few anis, and a few Mongol lamas. It was really nice! They all look forward to you coming back out for a visit soon!!

Ah. Brings backs memories of the Dulaan "scam" I ran. Nice to know I have company now, cuzzin.

Ven. Yuttadhammo: I actually do have millions in the bank. They're tugrigs, of course, at 1600 to the dollar, and earmarked for a translation project, but still. Only in Mongolia can I be a millionaire.

And only three wives? You amateur.

So you're a millionaire, living in a penthouse apartment! (I'm not even going to ask about the number of wives.)

On the rumours, there seems to be a spiritual challenge in not letting criticism get to you. Even Mother Theresa had her critics and her response to them was very similar to the Buddha's. Her advice in part was as follows:
"If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful you will win some false friends and true enemies;
Succeed anyway."

I'd also love to find some ataraxia for myself, so today I'm thinking nice thoughts about my boss (or at least neutral) instead of complaining.

I don't think any of that to be true but what's this I hear about 'buuzing' it up? ;-)

Aarlene: LOL. Good one, and guilty as charged! Just last night I was invited to someone's home to do prayers and such and buuz was right at the top of the menu. I think if you cut me right now, I'd bleed mutton fat.

AAAAAAAAGH - am now addicted to Free Rice site! And now know what albanian currency is - qindar!

Thanks, Bro.
