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.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Sadhu!!! Heres to many more years!!!

:anjali:
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

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. :)
