kstjames, joined Dhamma Wheel today at Christmas eve, about 8 pm, West coast time of the U.S. which makes 1,000 members!

And it all happens just a few days before our first anniversary!

Dhamma Wheel began on Jan. 1, 2009 and now has 1,000 members and nearly 50,000 posts!

Christmas eve in the US coincides with Christmas Day in Australia!
Welcome to kstjames!
One thousand members and a few days short of our first birthday, let the celebrations begin!

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Whenever you hear that someone else has been successful, rejoice.
Always practice rejoicing for others--whether your friend or your enemy.
If you cannot practice rejoicing, no matter how long you live, you will not be happy.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

I rejoice and am so happy for the founders, moderators and members of this forum, past, present and to come.
Long may you, as DhammaWheel, keep rolling along!

I am sooooo happy - How on earth could I be otherwise?! :D

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

:buddha2:

Evidently you've now worked out how to post a message, since it appears just above this one of mine, but if you are experiencing any technical difficulties, feel free to ask in the Suggestion Box forum and I'm sure someone will be able to help you out.

Metta,
Retro. :)
