Thank you for your kind welcomes Manapa & David 'The Dhamma' Snyder.

:smile:

Manapa: I see you are from Aberdeen. I myself am just outside Edinburgh.

The Dhamma: Curiously enough, a friend of mine just became a friend of yours on Facebook.

Hope you are both well.

The Isle of Man is a place I have never visited actually. I hear it is lovely.

it depends on wha you enjoy, it is a mini-Scotland in many ways as my Gran used to say (she was Scotish), beautiful views etc, and if you like bikes there is no better place than here when the races are on.

Greetings Dave,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha1:

Go Hibs!

Metta,
Retro. :)
“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”

Many thanks RetroFuturist!
