Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.
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.
What is the use of his knowledge
pertaining to the number of insects in the whole world?
Rather, inquire into his knowledge of
that which is to be practised by us
This being is bound to samsara, kamma is his means for going beyond.
SN I, 38.
Níl sa saol seo ach ceo
There is naught in this life but mist
Is ní bheimid beo ach seal beag gearr.
And we will not be alive but a short hard time.

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.

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.
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)'We should not congratulate someone on the success of their misdeeds, but on the contrary should endeavour to advise him or her to lead a more skilful and wholesome life. If such advice is ignored then we can only give up and let go' - Phra PanyapatipoDharma Wheel (Mahayana / Vajrayana forum)
