    Bhante' Samahita

    Recently heard that Bhikkhu Samahita died at his own hands after suffering with a parasitic infection, which apparently kept him in great pain.

    Here is his website for those of you who studied and worked with him:

    Yes, its really sad that Bhikkhu Samahita committed suicide last October.

    I didn't know him myself, nor did I have an interest in following any of his teachings.

    I heard that the parasite can reach the brain and affect behaviour too. As a retired biology teacher it makes me shudder.

    We should all be reminded to treat or boil our drinking water when camping, hiking or picnicing.
