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,

Andrew

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.”

Greetings and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

:hello:

Metta,

“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)

What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)

"If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 50 years ago, a liberal 25 years ago and a racist today." (Thomas Sowell)
