Dhamma Vinaya Forum in Germany

Postby Thitadhammo » Thu Oct 22, 2009 7:57 am

Dear friends in the Dhamma, :buddha1:

here in Germany we have established a new platform for exchanging Dhamma knowledge and practical experience just a few days ago. We named it "Dhamma Vinaya Forum". It is mainly thought for a discussion of Dhamma Vinaya in the German language but we also have sections for Pali, Thai and Chinese.

http://www.dhamma-vinaya.de

For your kind suggestions and good advice we would be very grateful. :thanks:


Let the Dhammawheel now also roll in the German Version - The Volkswagen of Buddhism.... :rofl:


Best wishes from Bodhi Vihara in Freising,

Thitadhammo

Dear Venerable
Congratulations on the establishment of Dhamma-Vinaya. May it be a beacon of light for all German-speaking people!

Bhante,

Congratulations!

I registered a user name over there: TheDhamma

I thought about writing it the German way, but somehow didn't like the sound of it: DieDhamma :mrgreen:

Dear David and friends,

"Vielen Dank" and Anumoda for your lavish moral support! :group:

In German you actually would have to write DerDhamma (masculine), but in the Bavarian dialect we would say DaDhamma. (th>d) so we are getting pretty close.

Best wishes,

Hej Annabel,

I also say "das Dhamma". It sounds better to me.

But I've read that there is a controversy among scholars which article should be used. Some say that it should be "der Dhamma", because Dhammo is masculin in Pali. Others say that it should be "das Dhamma" (like in "das Gesetz") because it was used in this way since the first German Dhamma books were written.

It's the same for "Sangho". In Pali it is masculin, so "der Sangha" would be correct, although "die Sangha" (like "die Gemeinschaft") is more common.

Anyway,
:focus:

Thank you very much Bhante Thitadhammo and Bhante Gavesako for providing this new forum. Thank you for giving the German Sangha an opportunity to communicate with the ordained Sangha. :bow:

Nice to see dear Bhikkhu Thitadhammo!

May der, die, das __ Dhamma roll :-)
Just that! *smile*
...We Buddhists must find the courage to leave our temples and enter the temples of human experience, temples that are filled with suffering. If we listen to Buddha, Christ, or Gandhi, we can do nothing else. The refugee camps, the prisons, the ghettos, and the battlefields will become our temples. We have so much work to do. ...

I would like to recommend it as extraordinary serious, professional and compassionated moderated!
Some parts are also in English, I guess it does not matter to bring questions also in English.
