Hi

Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.

Hi

Postby Stu » Fri Aug 09, 2013 3:52 am

Hi all,

Long-time reader/lurker ... :reading: :spy:

... first-time poster.

Thought it was time I finally "came out into the open" and said hi. :)

I first discovered the Dhamma about 15 years ago, but recently I've felt it's time to deepen my practice and understanding. So becoming part of the community at Dhamma Wheel seems like the right thing to do at the right time.

Best wishes,
Stu

Greetings from Werribee.

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

Thanks Retro, Chris and Kim. :)

Retro, I'm currently in Northcote, but planning to move to the foothills of the Dandenongs soon.

Chris, I think we met very briefly when Ed (Zavk) and I were staying at Dhammagiri in 2011.

Nice. I was out that way just a couple of weekends ago with my ladyfriend to go on Puffing Billy.

I grew up in Wantirna South (near Knox City Shopping Centre) so I know the 'hood out that way pretty well.

Ah, so you know Ed too! Cool. :)
