Please congratulate Robertk - DW's new moderator!

Postby Ben » Sun May 27, 2012 9:59 am

Dear all,

I have pleasure in announcing that Robertk has been made a moderator here at Dhamma Wheel for our Classical Mahavihara Forum.
Robertk has an extensive knowledge of the Tipitaka (inc. the Abhidhamma), the ancient commentarial literature and Pali. Robert has been a long-standing member of the Dhamma Study Group in Bangkok and student of Sujin Boriharnwanaket. I am sure many of you are familiar with Robert's contributions here.
When Robertk is not here, he can be found as administrator of his own forum Abhidhamma Vipassana
Its great to have you on-board, Robert!
with metta,

Ben

Welcome Robert!

:anjali:
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

Greetings Robert,

Thanks.

:thanks:

Metta,
Retro. :)

Thanks all!
I will try to keep my new powers as mod within the classical forum, and please be patient if I am slow to look in from time to time. I live in Bangkok but travel often: next month to Sri lanka.

The classical section and a drinking stoned cat.... kewl :tongue:
Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

Robert is one of those special people that you tend to feel really lucky to know. Why? Because not only is Robert's extensive knowledge of the Dhamma very impressive, his passion is inspirational, and his good natured and kind character make him one of a kind. The world needs more people like Robert, imo. He really is a special kind of person (sorry to put you on the spot like that!)

Congratulations.


Kevin
