    Questions about Washin

    Dear All,

    Several people have asked me how Washin is doing, as he has been absent and quiet for awhile.

    Washin, as we might suspect, is certainly exhausted and taking a little silent retreat time for himself. He is not the kind to say, but I hope he watches his health too. As you know, the war continues into its second year, with many tragedies reported in the past week. It is winter, but many are without electricity and heat, including in Odesa. Although Odesa is not on the front lines, electrical power there was even more reduced this week due to Russian missile attacks and things are hard, which makes it impossible for him to participate in his weekly sittings. I know that he will forward more news soon.

    Gassho, Jundo

    Being a novice priest doesn't mean that my writing about the Dharma is more substantial than yours. Actually, it might well be the other way round.

    I have a lot to learn; take anything I say that sounds like teaching with a grain of salt.
