Hello all. I'm afraid that as a complete beginner, I don't have much to offer but I shall read your posts with great interest. There are several posters here whose erudition and insight I've been astonished by on other sites and it's good to see that you're still posting; you can be assured that your writing is appreciated.

Hi Lampang

Welcome, and please feel free to contribute!
Kind regards

“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”
