Hi Seniya,
how about this, i found at Dīpavaṃsa :
asokadhammo ‘bhisitto paṭiladdhā ca iddhiyo, mahātejo puññavanto dīpe cakkapavattako [asokadhamma, after his coronation, obtained the miraculous faculties; exceedingly splendid and rich in meritorious works (he was), universal monarch of Jambudīpa]- Dīp vi,23

mettacittena,


Thx for the info....

Btw, why this forum doesn't have Thank you button like other forums????
I'm sorry if my words are not understandable and it is in impolite expression, because my native language is not English....

No thanks, it is our policy right now to not have thank you buttons, thumbs-up buttons, etc.

For some (not all) it might end up being a competition and another chance to feed the ego.

Thanks for the suggestion, but for now we will not be adopting that one.

One could still post the smilie: :goodpost: once in a while when there is a post that one is especially fond of or of course thanking someone for some good info.

Greetings,

And there definitely won't be a "karma" function to enable members to smite each other!

If you wish to show somebody gratitude, you can always just post your thanks, or even privately message them. :thanks:
