Hi, checking in

Postby andrewuk » Sat Mar 07, 2009 4:52 pm

Hi everyone,

Well, a few days ago I logged in to E Sangha first time for months. I happened to see the topic started by Ben that Bhikkhu Dhammanando was unwell.

Ben said Bhante Dhammanando is no longer in E Sangha so I joined this forum. I enjoyed reading Bhante Dhammanando's posts very much and he is indeed a very knowledge scholar.

I just realise that many of the Bhikkhus and some big names are in this forum too -- Bhikkhu Pesala, Bhikkhu Gavesako, Bhikkhu Appicchato, retrofuturist, Ben Tiltbillings, etc.

I hope everyone is well.

With Metta,

Andrew

Nice to see you. :hello:
Rain soddens what is kept wrapped up,
But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.

hi

Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

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.
