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.

Metta,
Retro. :)
"When we transcend one level of truth, the new level becomes what is true for us. The previous one is now false. What one experiences may not be what is experienced by the world in general, but that may well be truer. (Ven. Nanananda)

“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)

Never again...

congratulations dave!

Good choice. :)

Good luck. :)
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
