Hey Moderators
Please tone down the colours of this site! I need sunglasses to look at this and it is not very attractive or soothing to the eye! 8-)

I rather like the colors, but then I suppose a dull grey goes with everything.

They seem fine to me also. Yet the orange-yellow spectrum would not suffer from being a little less intense.

Red, yellow, orange: bright colours as opposed to some of the neutral colours found at most forums + the blue and white of the texts = The Buddhist colours (including the flag). :geek:

Greetings,

I like the colours.

Hey, that's Goenkaji with the Bhikkhusangha!
Where did you get that photo, Retro?
“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.
