Tiltbillings - Global Moderator

Postby retrofuturist » Wed Jan 21, 2009 5:32 am

Greetings everyone,

I'm pleased to announce that tiltbillings has accepted an offer to come on board with Dhamma Wheel as a global moderator.

He has moderating experience at other sites, has been a valuable long-term member at E-Sangha, and he brings with him to the role a wealth of knowledge and experience about Buddhism.

Please join me in congratulating tilt on his appointment.

Metta,
Retro. :)

This is exciting and will benefit all of us. Tilt is a walking dhamma encylopedia! And he's fair to people and open-minded. Good pick, Dhammawheel staff.

Best wishes Tilt,

Congrats tilt!

:namaste:
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

This is awesome news. Tilt's Sutta-based wisdom is precious and wonderful.
