In the poor projects of Stockholm called Alby, in a tall grey house, in the living room of an ordinary flat, there is a Buddhist temple. Several monks from Asia used to live and work here. But the weather was so dark and cold, and the landlord complained, and it was too depressing to walk around in shoes and thick clothes. So one monk after another gave up. But not Bhante Pannaratana. He stays in the rough neighborhood and keeps up the temple activities, even though most people in the area are Muslims, and his bodhi tree from Sri Lanka is about to give in from lack of sunlight. Bhante performs walking meditation on a small hill between the multi-storey blocks. He expresses his humble belief in love for all living creatures. And he strives.
