Sudden Moments Of Timeless Knowing
After dawn slowly but tenderly light reveals itself as vast open blue sky.
Looking into that presence forgetting that which looks at the boundless openness.
Not a single form or trace arises in mind.
Just the sunlight of an unclaimed knowing appears spontaneously.
Deep within the heart shines the moonlight,
Illuminating the whole being that is within the centre of mind
amazingly empty, without fear and measure.
Abundantly pure is this presence is a light mutually merging
and embracing the timeless Now.
Suddenly moments of seeing the abundance of white light
naturally abiding profoundly open and clear.
Resting completely here in that which is
Simply just that unnamed suchness.
Bhante Santitthito Mahathera, Wat Buddhalavarn,

We regret to inform all of the passing away of perhaps Australia's most elderly western monk, Bhante ( Phra Ajahn) Santitthito on 29th Aug 2014 at 4:40am at the age of 74 years. Originally from Germany (Ronald Wagner), Bhante has made significant contribution to the growth of Buddhism in Australia, bringing the Buddha Dhamma to the English speaking Australian community. He was Deputy Abbot and Vice-President of Wat Buddhalavarn at Weddrburn, NSW, Australia.

Bhante was a member of the Australian Sangha Association. He was a kind and thoughtful monk, and the Sangha will be poorer due to his passing.

On behalf of the Australian Buddhist community and our Executive, I would like to express our sincere and heart felt condolences for the loss of all those on board the downed Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17.
The senseless act of violence against the MA aircraft crew, the 37 men, women and children from Australia and all the other innocent passengers from, Holland, Malaysia and other countries has saddened everyone. We cannot imagine the distress the family and friends of the MH17 crew and passengers must be feeling after this terrible event.
