Ben - Global Moderator

Postby Paul Davy » Thu Jan 01, 2009 5:03 am

Greetings everyone,

I am pleased to announce that Ben has decided to act as a global moderator here with us at Dhamma Wheel.

As he mentioned in his personal introduction, he is an experienced Theravadin Buddhist of over two decades and having worked alongside him before, I can say he is an excellent moderator and will be a great asset to this community.

Please join me in welcoming Ben to this position.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

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

Congrats Ben!

(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.”
