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!

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

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

There are these roots of trees, these empty huts. Meditate, bhikkhus, do not delay or else you will regret it later. This is our instruction to you.” - MN 19

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. :)

And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'."
(Snp 3.6)

"Whether I were to preach in brief, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach in detail, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach both in brief or in detail, Sāriputta, rare are those who understand." (A I 333, Sāriputtasutta)
