F.O.B

Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.

F.O.B

Postby BlackBird » Fri Apr 17, 2009 12:16 pm

Hello all

I've been posting on and off for a couple of years over at the other site. Recently came to feel dissatisfied with the way things are there at the moment, after consultation with a few, this forum here was alluded to, so here I am. I must say seeing a thriving community on the internet, dedicated to Theravada makes me a very happy man. I've just gotta remember not to get attached :tongue:

I see a lot of old faces here too, so I'm glad to see you haven't dissappeared :)

I am sooooo happy - How on earth could I be otherwise?! :D

Greetings Jack,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha2:

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
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!
