Hi, checking in

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.

Greetings and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

:hello:

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)

One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7
