We have been asked to report any sightings of a specific stink bug, the brown marmorated stink bug . I knew there was a distinguishing feature but could not remember what it was so I looked it up. The distinguishing feature is that the joints of the segments on the antennae are white. Luckily then, this was not a specimen. They can cause widespread damage to fruit and vegetable crops and loves soybeans, planted this year, right beside my apple trees.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama speaks to Chinese devotees about Bliss and Wisdom

12 July 2017

Deskit Monastery, Nubra Valley, Ladakh – His Holiness gave a short discourse to Chinese devotees at Deskit Monastery, followed by a question and answer session. His Holiness answered questions posed by Venerable Fan Yin (????), former abbot of Fengshan Monastery (???), Taiwan, as well as the CEO of Bliss and Wisdom Edu Park, Chen Yao-Hui (???).

------------------------

First and second abbot of Fengshan Monastery have left.
The first abbot, a group of monks and some leaders of Bliss & Wisdom traveled to Ladakh to meet the Dalai Lama.
The first abbot has made many allegations about the inside workings of Bliss & Wisdom. Plenty of info available in Chinese, but mostly leaked info and speculation. Perhaps it will take some time for concrete evidence to emerge.

Seems pretty clear that Bliss & Wisdom has been hijacked by the Chinese Communist Party. Very, very sad....
