Greetings and welcome Gotamist,

Long time no see.

:hello:

Metta,
Retro. :)
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7

Hi Gotamist,

Good to see you around. I was wondering what had become of you. :smile:

Best wishes,
Dhammanando Bhikkhu
