Seemed like an appropriate place to say hello to one and all and thanks for creating this wonderful venue. I'm potty trained now, so I promise not to post in the Theravada areas. :)

Thanks again and best wishes.

Oops ... I guess I should have put this in introductions, but who would know me if I wasn't making mistakes?

hi and welcome


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

And don't get flushed down, either genkaku! :toilet:

I'm not sure I'm properly trained yet, so I stick to the Discovering Theravada section ;)

Hi Ven Dhammanando
will make a few enquiries to see if Alan still has the group sittings as would be interested if their still going.
havent sat with them in some years tho met Alan a few years ago when i was doing some photographic work for the council in the nottingham caves, which he was also involved in.He had just returned from Japan.
I was studying Rinzai in London at the time but often sat with the group, which helped dispel notions of "differences" in traditions.
i was introduced through them to some lovely Thai Forest monks visiting notts. :smile:
this was over 20 years ago - sheeesh.temper fugit.

metta
