Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.
I'm John Riggs, a long-time member of e-Sangha and currently a moderator there. I practice in the Theravada tradition and am looking forward to participating here. It's good to see many old friends here.

With a lady in St. Louie,
When there sudden comes a knockin' at the door.
And that knocker, he says, "Honey,
Roll this rocker out some money,
Or your daddy shoots a baddie to the floor." ♫♫ --The Venerable Mr. Miggle

Hi and welcome
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Excellent to see you here, and I hope you come to feel very welcome!
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)'We should not congratulate someone on the success of their misdeeds, but on the contrary should endeavour to advise him or her to lead a more skilful and wholesome life. If such advice is ignored then we can only give up and let go' - Phra PanyapatipoDharma Wheel (Mahayana / Vajrayana forum)
