Greetings to All.

Postby Ordinaryperson » Tue Mar 24, 2009 12:32 pm

Greetings to All,

I have just arrived at this website through thornbush from another site so pop in to say hello to everyone.

I only found this site when I started to wonder where Bhante Dhammanando has gone so asked around and here I am.

I am pleased to see many familiar names around so I am going to hang around to learn.

A quick intro, I belong to Theravada Buddhism and our linkage to Theravada Buddhism (father side) stretches back a very very long time but my knowledge is limited only to what I have been taught by my father so I can only talk about experience I know.

Will upload my avatar later ...

Hi Ordinaryperson,

Welcome! :smile:
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.

I don't believe there is any such thing as an "Ordinary person"..... all are extraordinary, in their own, unique, 'not-self' kind of way..... ;)

Greetings Ordinary Person,

Excellent to see you join us here at Dhamma Wheel... I was wondering when you would arrive!

:hello:

Metta,
Retro. :)

Thanks all for the welcome everyone.

Nice website Retro. :twothumbsup:

I have been very busy for a while now (doing this :reading: for work ... ) so was unable to do the things I like and only managed to occasionally drop by the other site. The other site is good too so I guess I will be visiting both whenever I can.

I will continue to be very busy until at least August 09 as I need to jump over the final hurdle ( well ... second last major hurdle) in my life, but I will try to read as much if not to learn as much as I can while visiting Dhamma Wheel and the other site.

Anyway, glad that I find everyone here again.
