e-sangha

Postby Collective » Fri Oct 16, 2009 8:15 am

Hello

e-sangha is down. When researching as to why I as shocked to find out about the strict curtailing of view points it had.

So I found this site

I'm a 'newbie' from Wales with way too many questions

Peace and thanks

Questions are welcome, and I hope you find Dhamma Wheel of interest and value.

Sure, no axe to grind, just saying that I was shocked.

Thanks

Welcome to the site


Im from wales as well :)
Lost to a world in which I crave no part,
I sit alone and listen to my heart,
Pleased with my little corner of the earth,
Glad that I came--not sorry to depart

Greetings Collective,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”

Hi all,
I was about to start a new one when i saw the topic of this intro as e-sangha. Actually,it is because I couldnt log into Esangha that prompted me to look for other alternative when i stumbled upon dhamma wheel.What impressed me more is that most of the members i am actually familiar with, so this is just like a family for me too. And furthermore, since i am more Theravada-based, this forum sounds, at my first impression, more resources to cater my needs.
Greetings all once again,
Dhammanucara

Hello Collective, Dhammanucara.
One of the things I enjoy about Dhammawheel is there is an emphasis on spiritual friendship or Kalyāṇa-mittatā. There's a wholesomeness to it, and if one hangs around one can be expected to foster good qualities and reap the corresponding happiness.

It's all good, as they say.

Hope you enjoy your time here and learn a lot :)
