I'm pleased to announced that Cooran
has been appointed as a Global Moderator!
She brings to the team a wealth of skills and knowledge, both as a moderator with extensive experience at E-Sangha, and as a dedicated Theravada practitioner.
As a long standing member and friend of the forum, please make Cooran feel welcome in her new role!
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)
Neither traceable in the Discourses nor verifiable by the Discipline, one must conclude thus: 'Certainly, this is not the Blessed One's utterance; this has been misunderstood by that bhikkhu — or by that community, or by those elders, or by that elder.' In that way, bhikkhus, you should reject it. (DN 16)
