On Gratitude - On Message

In an interview with the Buddhist Channel Ajahn Sumedho reflects upon the Vinaya and Bhikkhuni ordination. While it's impossible to argue with his warnings against "selfing", taking sides and dualism; his surrender of Western liberal, egalitarian ethics on the "altar" of Thai parochial cultural prejudice is saddening. As to not taking sides, this is so "on message" that it is nothing more than drawing that line in the sand again.
