If you have a Wikipedia account

Postby Sumano » Fri Feb 05, 2010 11:13 am

If you have a Wikipedia account and use userboxes, I've created one for Theravada users:

For example, here is my userpage with userboxes: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Eu.stefan

If you want to include the Theravada userbox, just copy this in your userpage:

{{User:Eu.stefan/Userbox/Theravada}}


And if you want other userboxes too:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:UBX/Userboxes
I am on the path, however not yet advanced. Any opinions or insights I share are meant entirely for discussion purposes and in cases where people might find them beneficial in whatever way. Since I am not advanced on the Path, I cannot guarantee that what I say will always necessarily be 100% true or in line with the Dhamma. However, having had an extremely interesting life with a wide variety of different (many of them deep) experiences, I hope that anything I share will be of use, provide food for thought, and inspire interesting and beneficial discussions.

Mettā to all! :anjali:

Nice work stefan!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Thanks Stefan! I always liked the look of those userboxes (reminds me of some of my bumper stickers, such as the one in my signature line). I went and added a bunch of userboxes to my user and even created a few that apparently did not exist, for example:

If anyone wants to use the one above, copy this to your userpage:

{{User:Theravada1/mahabodhi}}

I am up to 21 userboxes so far: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Theravada1
