Daverupa ~ global moderator!

Postby retrofuturist » Fri Jan 17, 2014 10:08 pm

Greetings all,

Please join me in welcoming daverupa as a global moderator here at Dhamma Wheel.

I believe that Dave's knowledge, temperament and sincere dedication towards both his Dhamma practice and this forum will make him a valuable asset to the moderation team.

Thanks for coming on board Dave, and a public thank you to the rest of the team who have been putting in extra efforts over the past month and a half to cover for Ben's absence.

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)

Exalted in mind, just open and clearly aware, the recluse trained in the ways of the sages:
One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7

congratulations dave!
Aflame with the fire of passion, the fire of aversion, the fire of delusion.
Aflame, with birth, aging & death, with sorrows, lamentations, pains, distresses, & despairs ......

Seeing thus, the disciple of the Noble One grows disenchanted. SN 35.28
