I'm John Riggs, a long-time member of e-Sangha and currently a moderator there. I practice in the Theravada tradition and am looking forward to participating here. It's good to see many old friends here.

A big welcome to an old friend!
Thanks for coming along!

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Greetings John,

Excellent to see you here, and I hope you come to feel very welcome!

Metta,
