I'm new (kinda)

Postby DonkeyDarko » Mon Dec 14, 2009 11:48 am

Hey all.

I used to go by DhammaPunk on the eSangha forums, but I was never amazingly active there so I don't suppose that means much to anyone!

I took refuge over a year ago, but because of illness and a few other things have not been back to my temple or met with the local buddhist community much since then, so expect lots of questions from me for a while cos I'm kind of a newbie :P

Hi!
hope you enjoy any discussions here!

Welcome, DonkeyDarko :smile:
There are quite a few folk here who used to visit e-sangha, including me. I kept the same identity, a few others haven't.

Greetings,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha2:

Metta,
Retro. :)
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)
