"Saba Danam , Dhamma Danam Janati "

These words spoken by all the Buddhas are so ripe and intense with meaning . Am reminded reading somewhere, that when the Sangha was first formed by Lord Gautama The Buddha , and among the five , the first one to realize was the Venerable Kondana , Lord Buddha uttered " Kondana has understood , Kondana has understood , Kondana has understood ."

It is very humbling to see so many in this forum , who are living these words in both letter and spirit.

May i get established in Sila, Samadhi and Panna , living a life full of virtue and good will. A virtuous life , lived with humility and awareness is most nourishing and rewarding.

Am grateful to everyone .

"Only those who take to meditation with good intentions can be assured of success. With the development of the purity and the power of the mind backed by the insight into the ultimate truth of nature, one might be able to do a lot of things in the right direction for the benefit of mankind."
