Greetings and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
Many of us here are 'geographically challenged' with regards to access to local practitioners, and therefore find much benefit in being able to communicate with other wayfarers along the path. It is a bonus blessing that we also have ordained Buddhists who drop by at Dhamma Wheel and participate too.
"Do not force others, including children, by any means whatsoever, to adopt your views, whether by authority, threat, money, propaganda, or even education." - Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh
"Whether I were to preach in brief, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach in detail, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach both in brief or in detail, Sāriputta, rare are those who understand." (A I 333, Sāriputtasutta)
