Hello Bhante,

As a long time monk, do you ever face feelings of loneliness, feelings of lacking something, tender feelings of possibly lacking someone?

I've spent all my 37 years somewhat alone yet I still find myself facing those feelings sometimes.

I'd find it interesting to hear what kind of a part, if any, feelings like these play in the lifes of the venerable members of the sangha, the monks.

Also, as a side question, I would find it interesting to hear if you have ever faced any doubts about the path you are on?

Best wishes,
