The Other William

Funny,  the Venerable Subharo, a monk friend of mine (once known as Dustin), recently moved to Tisarana Monastery in Perth, ON. (Feel free to pay him a visit there). And he bumped into a noteworthy fellow there.

Here's what his email to me says:

I was just thinking of you the other day, and then a visitor arrived, named William Bi (who I had seen a few times at Birken), and after getting to know him a little more, it turns out you have a lot in common with him:
1) He lives in Beijing
2) He's a reporter (for Bloomberg)
3) He not only meditates, but teaches a Theravada meditation group in central Beijing, called "Beijing Sangha" (you can apparently find it in Google Groups).  He also teaches yoga.
4) biking
5) Your first name!
6) You're also about the same age

Hm! How do like that? i'm particularly interested 'cause i didn't konw there were any other peer-led meditation groups in Beijing here.

Anyhow, I'll drop him a line soon.
