Hi, everyone,
Quite a few of you know me - and I know you - from e-Sangha.
I went on holidays a couple of months ago and when I came back I found it had crashed. :cry:
After a while I gave up waiting for e-sangha to re-incarnate and looked around ... and here I am :smile:

You're remembered Kim! The gender-issues thread is still fresh in my mind.
Good to see you again :)

Greetings Kim,

Yes, of course we remember you!

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel! :buddha2:

Metta,
Retro. :)

Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

welcome back Kim

"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
