It’s not for sleeping,
the night garlanded
with zodiac stars.
The night, for one who knows,
is for staying awake.
If I were to fall from my elephant’s shoulder,
and a tusker trampled me,
death in battle would be better for me,
than that I, defeated,

Much merit to Viscid who pulled the idea off and is taking care of the technical side of things We still look for a few more practitioners to expand the circle but it seems like that will take some more time. It's either because people don't see just how well we're doing as we really do; having close friends who practice along with you, who you can regulary talk to about your daily insights and issues is invaluable and helps so much in establishing a steady practice. The Grouposatha and regulary talking to each other about the practice is sort of bonding and our activities serve as regular inspirations to practice. I'm glad to spread the word about this because well, kalayana mittas are indeed the whole spiritual life!
... though maybe we look too good so people hesitate, I don't know
I'll just look forward to the Dhammapoems on Sunday for now We're currently also thinking about having a regular discussion round on practice topics on Dhammawheel chat (like the food topic) to encourage people to practice. People regulary drop by to see what's going on on Dhammawheelchat so that's good. Scheduling a good time that fits most DW-users might be difficult though. 17:30 UTC might not be the best time for that.
Do you have any idea when most people are around on Dhammawheel chat (day and time specifically?). That would help
