Hellooooo!

Hi all,

Nice forum!

A lot of familiar faces, or avatars rather. Some of you might know me from other forums, but I won't reveal my true identity. :spy:

Cheers!

Welcome piper ('charming' name by the way). Who knows one's true identity anyway? Image

As long as you know who you are, I guess that's what really counts. :)

Welcome.

Welcome Piper!
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.

Greetings & welcome, Piper!

Metta,

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)
