hi
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

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.

Hi Dr. Who,

I think I remember you from E-Sangha... you're a Nichiren Buddhist?

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

Actually I was a Nichiren buddhist.
I recently spent years into guru yoga under a Tibetan Rinpoche.

I don't know what i am anymore.
I am going to explore Theravadian here.

Warm vibes in here by the way.
I'm sensitive to good things and this place has it.

Hi Dr Who
I hope you find some support and interesting conversations here with us.

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

I know that goo is impermanent and empty. Does that count?
