Dhamma Wheel meeting 2

Postby David N. Snyder » Fri Nov 13, 2009 2:39 pm

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.

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
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. :)

That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”

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:
