Yet another

Postby Su Dongpo » Wed Nov 04, 2009 6:31 am

e-sangha refugee has washed up on your shore.

Does this Dhamma Wheel have a Shore?
Is this then Zen, or metaphor?

If Shore upon a Wheel be Found,
Can Mind then Stand upon this Ground?

What Comes of Mind and Shore and Wheel,
When Hackers Seek to Harm and Steal?

Out from Bardo, away Red Dust!
Let Dhamma Wheel Restore our Trust!

Fear Not, Sangha, Stand Brave and True,
The Wheel's Safe Shores shall Comfort You.

Thanks and welcome to you and all the E-Sangha Diaspora.

Welcome!

(btw, maybe you'd like to take a swing at the limerick challenge?)
Rain soddens what is kept wrapped up,
But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.

Greetings heybai,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha2:

Metta,
Retro. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Never again...

Welcome friend, glad to have you with us :)
