Hello Friends In Dhamma, :namaste:

i am Vinayananda bhikkhu from Bangkok. i'm engaged with Buddhist Studies (M.A) at a Buddhist university here. actually i came across this DHAMMA WHEEL and signed in few months ago, and had few chances to go through some of the interesting topics and also have a small post but unfortunately, i'm very sorry to mention that i did not notice this self-introduction post.

anyway, i'm very interested in this wonderful Dhamma-sharing site with all the deep discussions and recent issues that concern Buddhism. i would like to have frequent access to this site now.

auspicious wishes to everyone

:thanks:

Vinayananda

Greetings Vinayanandabk,

I thought I recognised your username!

Well... for you, a belated welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

Metta,

Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

Welcome Bhante!

समाहितं चित्तं यथाभूतं पजानाती |

A concentrated mind sees things as they really are.

-Ujuko nāma so maggo, abhayā nāma sā disā.

उजुको नाम सो माग्गो, अभया नाम सा दिसा |

'Straight' is this path, fearlessness is its way.

hi
Rain soddens what is kept wrapped up,
But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.
