Dhamma Wheel meeting 2

From facebook, I see that Bhante Dhammanando met with Phalañani Daniela. Soon she may be receiving her full ordination (hopefully).

It's really nice to see women going forth under the Theravada Tradition. :namaste:

What a beautiful photo!
Thanks David for sharing.

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Greetings David,

I don't know quite how your numbering system works, but I think you've missed a few!

Ed & Chris, Ed & Ben, Ed & Mike, Me and Ben, Me and Salmon, Me and Dan74....

Metta,
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)

Hi Ed,

I'm going to ask the Events Co-ordinatior (aka Mrs Retro) when she gets home.

:oops: You're right! There have been quite a few Dhamma Wheel meetings. Excellent!

I remember the photo of Bhante Dhammanando with the three others and more recently Ed and Mike. Do we have photos of the other meetings? It might be nice to put them all in one thread to encourage more meetings.

I nearly met with Pink_Trike, but I have no photo to prove the near-miss :popcorn:
