Namasakarn to all Venerables and hellos to everyone else,

Didn't notice the Introductions section earlier so I posted in some other threads before here :smile:

Like many others, I found this site while lurking in ES. And I've noticed it's more active here, with more constructive discussions, too.

If my sharing here cannot be constructive, then let it not be destructive at least.

Greetings Salmon,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

:hello:

Metta,
Retro. :)
“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”
