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.

:buddha1:

Metta,
Retro. :)
"Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'."
(Snp 3.6)

"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)
