      Dear John,

      No, I don't think so. "bhaddaka.m" is a visesana of kamma.m, which is
      assumed:

      > bhante, bhaddaka.m vo kata.m (kamma.m) idhaagacchantehi (tumhehi)
      "bhante"=venerable sir, "tumhehi"=by you "aagacchantehi"=one who comes
      "bhaddaka.m"=a heightened (lit: developed?) "kamma.m"=action
      "kata.m"=has been done.

      Best wishes,

      Yuttadhammo (Phra Noah)

      ps: I would suggest either "Yuttadhammo" or "Phra Noah" as an address.
