This is a very interesting video about monks trying to protect Thailand’s rapidly diminishing forests, sometimes at considerable risk to their lives. http://www.pbs.org/wnet/religionandethics/episodes/january-15-2010/forest-monks/5472/
I am not the 5th or 9th reincarnation of a great lama, I have not recived any empowerments or initiations, I am not the holder of any lineage, I am yet to attain any of the jhanas, I am not a widely respected teacher, I am not a stream enterer (at least I don't feel like one)and I do not have many disciples. Nontheless, you may find some of my observations and musings interesting. I have been a Buddhist monk for 32 years and am the spiritual advisor to the Buddha Dhamma Mandala Society in Singapore.
