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. :)

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.

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.
