Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.

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!

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.

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)

Welcome friend, glad to have you with us :)

:anjali:
"And so, because this Teaching is so different from what Westerners are accustomed to, they will try to adapt the Teaching to their own framework. What they need to learn to do is not to adapt the Teaching to their own point of view but to adapt their own point of view to the Teaching. This is called saddhá, or faith, and it means giving oneself to the Teaching even if the Teaching is contrary to one’s own preconceived notions of the way things are."- Ven Bodhesako
