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. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Never again...
