Yet another

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!

(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.

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)
