For anyone who maybe going through a bit of tough time (including myself), here is a message for you : Never give up. If you know this is what you want to do, this is your dream, then don't give up when things get tough.
No matter what you do in life, there are always challenges and obstacles, but if we give up when things get tough, then again we fall back in the old patterns of thinking and behaviours and there will be no growth.
Life in a monastery is not so easy, mainly because of the strict discipline applied here and it's not so easy for my little ego self and attachment to the old patterns of thinking & behaviours.
But I feel I have to keep on going, to never give up, knowing this is exactly what I need in my journey - more discipline, more selfless sacrifice, removing the ego, attachment and separation.
May we all progress each day on the oath of awakening 🙏🙏🙏 🙏 Namo Amitabha Buddha 🙏
