Hi, checking in

Postby andrewuk » Sat Mar 07, 2009 4:52 pm

Hi everyone,

Well, a few days ago I logged in to E Sangha first time for months. I happened to see the topic started by Ben that Bhikkhu Dhammanando was unwell.

Ben said Bhante Dhammanando is no longer in E Sangha so I joined this forum. I enjoyed reading Bhante Dhammanando's posts very much and he is indeed a very knowledge scholar.

I just realise that many of the Bhikkhus and some big names are in this forum too -- Bhikkhu Pesala, Bhikkhu Gavesako, Bhikkhu Appicchato, retrofuturist, Ben Tiltbillings, etc.

I hope everyone is well.

With Metta,

Meditate, don't be negligent, lest you may later regret it!

Nice to see you. :hello:
Rain soddens what is kept wrapped up,
But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.

“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.
"Others will misconstrue reality based on personal perspectives, firmly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our personal perspectives, nor firmly holding them, but easily discarded."

What he said Image
This being is bound to samsara, kamma is his means for going beyond. -- SN I, 38.
