hello again

Hi, nathan here;

Well, the ordination is on temporary hold and I am back home to sort a few things out. Had a great experience of Thailand, found some good possibilities there for ordination, came back and spent some time at a monastery here in Canada and now I am home for a bit to recharge the batteries and make new plans for the next leg of the journey.

As I will have a little more free time, I thought I would spend some of that time catching up on whats new at Dhamma Wheel. I might even post a little...

Hi to old friends and new

Hello again Nathan... I hope all's well.

:hello:

Metta,
Retro. :)
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

Welcome back Nathan!
I'm glad that Thailand was a good experience and hope to hear about it when you've got time.
I hope all goes well with sorting out stuff back at home.

Glad to see you again
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!
