Greetings,

Just thought it might be worth bringing to your attention that if you have a facebook account, you can go to... http://www.facebook.com/username and get yourself a customised URL. For example, mine is http://www.facebook.com/pauldavy

Obviously, if you've got a pretty common name, or if you're after something particularly funky, you'll want to get in quick. Hence why I'm telling you. :tongue:

Metta,

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

Pubbe cāhaṃ bhikkhave, etarahi ca dukkhañceva paññāpemi, dukkhassa ca nirodhaṃ. (M.22)
Both formerly, monks, and now, it is just suffering that I make known and the ending of suffering.
Pathabyā ekarajjena, saggassa gamanena vā sabbalokādhipaccena, sotāpattiphalaṃ varaṃ. (Dhp 178)
Sole dominion over the earth, going to heaven or lordship over all worlds: the fruit of stream-entry excels them.

I'm not on facebook or any of the other network sites. Dhamma Wheel, e-mail, and my other sites keep me too busy already on the internet. :juggling:

But my wife is on facebook. She practices Theravada and likes to listen to Ajahn Brahm on iPod. Her username:
