Dhammanando - Global Moderator

Postby Paul Davy » Thu Jan 01, 2009 11:44 am

Greetings,

I am thrilled to be able to announce that venerable Dhammanando has decided to join us here at Dhamma Wheel in the capacity of a Global Moderator.

Venerable Dhammanando is the most learned bhikkhu I know and I have a deep respect for him. I know there are others here amongst us who feel similarly about venerable Dhammanando, so please join me in congratulating venerable Dhammanando on his appointment and making him welcome in his new role within our community.

Metta,
Retro. :)

In the capacity of general expert and Teacher, I can think of nobody better, really!

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,

Congrats Ajahn

(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”

Thanks in advance for your time and your insight.
