Once when I entered a store to shop, a monk stopped me. Without a word, he administered a blessing to me while onlookers stared! Wordlessly, he left extreme peace in my soul & lifted my burden! I went into to shop after about 2 hours, I checked out. There this man stood, bowing slightly to me & began his wordless ministration to me....for about 30 minutes he continued to minister to me! A spiritual & physical change was wrought in me! I am Christian yet his spiritual ministrations to me & for me, I felt to the core of my being! I had been chronically ill for sometime before this encounter; afterwards, slowly my chronic illnesses minimized or healed. Can anyone share anything that would help me understand more about this monk? Before this encounter, I had just heard about monks, but never met one.
