Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.
These days I sport an uber fashionable shaved head, because I no longer care about hair and I don't have much of it to care about.
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)

I don't know how you suppose this forum will be great by posting a whole load of samphappalāpa. A lot of great big egos doesn't make a great Buddhist forum. What I would like to see is some thoughtful posts and useful quotations or links.

Thank you for the reminder - too often we get carried away by, as you say, samphappalāpa. This is a new word for me - I'm only familiar with papañca (conceptual proliferation).
Bhante, your contributions and example are much appreciated here and on other lists, as well as on your website:http://www.aimwell.org/index.html
Thank you for all the consistent and valuable work you do for the Dhamma.
with metta and respect,

Some amount of samphappalāpa (small talk) is to be expected in a sub-forum on Introductions; also in the Lounge, where we have threads, such as: Word Association Game, music game, etc.
But the points of both sides are well taken and this thread has run its course and so I am closing it.
