不过,他们并没有找到这个常被刻画成戴着太阳镜的七十多岁的僧侣,只是找到了堆满枕头的空床。
By February 22nd more than 4,000 police and soldiers were lingering outside the Dhammakaya compound—waiting to complete a full sweep of the massive site but apparently hindered by monks and devotees who had blocked its dozen entrances.
到了2月22日,4000多警察和士兵在Dhammakaya外徘徊——准备进行一个大面积的清扫活动,但遭到了僧侣和信徒的阻碍,他们将很多入口都堵住了。
A spokesman for the sect claimed that 30,000 people were still inside the property, having ignored orders to leave; there have been scuffles at its gates.

Apiradee, a retired civil servant helping to feed Dhammakaya followers who had gathered in support outside the police cordon, said she has never seen anything like it.
Apiradee是一名退休的国家公务员,她负责给聚集在警戒线外的Dhammakaya的追随者提供给养,她说她从没见过这种事。

It bears a loose resemblance to the evangelical mega-churches that increasingly beguile the world's Christians.

Dhammakaya's mostly middle-class adherents complain that older Buddhist temples have grown complacent and materialistic.
Dhammakaya的大部分中产阶级拥护者抱怨大佛寺变得自满且唯物论了。
They insist, rather grandly, that the Bangkok compound, with its vast stadium, is meant to become a kind of Buddhist Vatican.
