Greetings dhamma.vinaya,

Lovely to see you, and I too hope this forum flourishes.

I look forward to your participation here as I've enjoyed reading your posts in the past.

Metta,

Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)
