I am thrilled to be able to announce that venerable Dhammanando
has decided to join us here at Dhamma Wheel in the capacity of a Global Moderator.
Venerable Dhammanando is the most learned bhikkhu I know and I have a deep respect for him. I know there are others here amongst us who feel similarly about venerable Dhammanando, so please join me in congratulating venerable Dhammanando on his appointment and making him welcome in his new role within our community.
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)'We should not congratulate someone on the success of their misdeeds, but on the contrary should endeavour to advise him or her to lead a more skilful and wholesome life. If such advice is ignored then we can only give up and let go' - Phra PanyapatipoDharma Wheel (Mahayana / Vajrayana forum)

In the capacity of general expert and Teacher, I can think of nobody better, really!

This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

"Others will misconstrue reality due to their personal perspectives, doggedly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our own personal perspectives, nor doggedly holding onto them, but will discard them easily. This effacement shall be done."

Thanks in advance for your time and your insight.
"The serene and peaceful mind is the true epitome of human achievement."-- Ajahn Chah, Living Dhamma
"To reach beyond fear and danger we must sharpen and widen our vision. We have to pierce through the deceptions that lull us into a comfortable complacency, to take a straight look down into the depths of our existence, without turning away uneasily or running after distractions." -- Bhikkhu Bodhi
