Hello Keith
Nice to meet you

Yippee! Keith's here!

Thanks.

As a Mahayanist, I probably won't have a lot to say here. However, I strongly believe that the Mahayana teachings really only make sense within the context of the Theravada teachings, so I like to stay in touch with Theravada sources.

Greetings Keith,

Wonderful to see you here, friend.

Are you sure you don't want to use your "hippy Keith" photo as your avatar? That pic is so cool. 8-)

Metta,

KeithBC,

It is great to see you here. Your posts over at the other forum were great! Your posts are always concise, directly to the point.

You have much to offer, as there are many forums that are not strictly Theravada and I am sure you could teach some of the Theravadins like me a thing or two, again!
