Im a student psychiatric nurse, father of four, into punk and other noisy music, am a regular for puja at Hartridge Monastery, Devon.....

Greetings Dave,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

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)
