Hi all,

I've been a member of dhamma wheel for a couple of months now and have been reading your posts with a lot of interest. I have to say its a great forum. A big thank you to everyone involved!

I just posted my first message and thought it rude not to introduce myself. :-) So yeah, hello everyone. I'm really happy to be part of this...

Greetings and welcome, Nadi.

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)

Hi
Nice to meet you
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Hi Nadi,

Welcome! :smile:

Ed
Sīlaṃ balaṃ appaṭimaṃ.
Sīlaṃ āvudhamuttamaṃ.
Sīlamābharaṇaṃ seṭṭhaṃ.
Sīlaṃ kavacamabbhutaṃ.


Virtue is a matchless power.
Virtue is the greatest weapon.
Virtue is the best adornment.
Virtue is a wonderful armor.

Theragatha 614


Sabbapāpassa akaraṇaṃ,
kusalassa upasampadā,
Sacittapariyodapanaṃ,
etaṃ buddhāna sāsanaṃ.


Refraining from all wrong-doing,
Undertaking the good,
Purifying the mind,
This is the teaching of the buddhas.
