Hi from Retrofuturist

Postby retrofuturist » Tue Dec 30, 2008 10:13 pm

Greetings everyone,

I'm a Theravadin Buddhist of approximately 3 years and most well known on the Internet to people through my participation at E-Sangha where I used to be a Global Moderator. I've also spent some time too amongst the rough and tumble of BuddhaChat.

I think this site has great potential so I would encourage people to invite all their Dhamma friends along to discuss the Dhamma.

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)


Exalted in mind, just open and clearly aware, the recluse trained in the ways of the sages:
One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7

Ok,

I'm just following my leader.....! :lol:

Translation: Just to stir things up seemed a good reward in itself. ;)

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

Yes, thank you Paul. And Happy New Year to you and your family.

"As Buddhists, we should aim to develop relationships that are not predominated by grasping and clinging. Our relationships should be characterised by the brahmaviharas of metta (loving kindness), mudita (sympathetic joy), karuna (compassion), and upekkha (equanimity)."
