Hello friends!

Postby lotus_in_the_hills » Wed Feb 18, 2009 2:48 am

One or two may recognize me from E-Sangha, though I have long since stopped posting there. I was tipped off by an anonymous comment on my blog and found my way here a few days ago! And, seeing as I could always use another distraction to keep me from working on my thesis, here I am :smile: I'm not sure if my old E-Sangha posts represent my worst writing or my best writing...but, hey, it counts for something right?....right?

Hi Lotus,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel. :smile:

I think I remember you from E-sangha. Is your thesis the one on C.A.F. Rhys Davids, or am I confusing you with someone else?

Best wishes,
Dhammanando Bhikkhu

Hello Bhante,

Yes, that was my MA thesis at SOAS :smile: I hope to return to the topic someday. My current (second) MA thesis is on Dalit converts to Buddhism in the 1930's.

Welcome lotus. Hope you find something useful here.

Also, I hope your thesis is not interrupted too often. :)

“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”
