I have immense gratitude for the blessings this life has offered me and one of those blessings is having met you and having found the true Dharma. I consider what you offer for free to be some of the most valuable material this planet and life can offer. I wish there were words valuable enough to express such a gratitude. Thank you again!

Meditator #1 Retreat Participant

I wanted to share my mom's retreat experience with Bhante. She is very happy with her first ever retreat and I can see real happiness coming up whenever she calls me and talks about her experience at Jetvan. Even though she can't understand english, she gained faith on this great path and this all happened because of your guidance. Thank you soo much Bhante!

Meditator #2 Retreat Participant

Thank you so much! That was probably... the best retreat of my life. The way you teach from your own translations is very special. It was the first time I can say I really understood Dependent Origination, the way you explained it. Amazing how words can make such a big difference. Thank you Bhante. 🙂

Meditator #12 Retreat Participant

Thank you Bhante! I never had a spiritual guide/mentor and having you is like truly having a refuge. I feel I have a strong support that wont let me falter , now I feel I wont get lost 🙂 I feel so relieved. Thank you so much!

Meditator #10 Retreat Participant

Your contribution to our lives is immeasurable. May you have all the strength and resolve you need to do your work and have fun. My heartfelt Metta and good wishes.

Meditator #3 Retreat Participant

Thank you for helping me understand TWIM better, 6Rs better. You, your discourses, your daily guidance really really helped me understand the technique better. "Be kind to yourself" is like my Guru Mantra 🙂 I would never ever forget that. It really helps me be less demanding of myself, be more gentle with myself and forgiving myself is a lot easier Thank you. Thank you for everything and thank you for being you!

Meditator #11 Retreat Participant

We want to retreat with you and Delson sir, as you explain the very important fine points in the Sutta very well... So we are waiting when you will give lectures online on Sutta study... Thank you Bhante.

Meditator #4 Retreat Participant

It is so heart warming to receive your support, especially since you've gone through this yourself and now seem to enjoy the bliss of the tranquil Metta practice. It's truly inspiring!

Meditator #5 Student

I must admit I have never encountered a monk who was this generous with his time and willing to go out of his way to assist other kalyana mittas. Allow me to thank you again 😊.

Meditator #6 Student

Thanks Bhante, I really appreciate the time and effort from you and everyone else in hosting such an inspiring retreat.

Thank you, Bhante 🙂 The tools you shared helped me gain clarity on the truth of "me”, and the strength to both follow and share this truth.
