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. :)
“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)

What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)

hi
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.
"Others will misconstrue reality based on personal perspectives, firmly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our personal perspectives, nor firmly holding them, but easily discarded."
