Hello everyone

Postby AlaskanDhamma » Mon Feb 16, 2009 8:32 pm

Great to see some familiar faces from a certain other Dhamma forum....even if they didn't tell me they had moved. ;P (I was formerly HolyPahkow!)

I feel like the fat kid that was picked last in soccer. Or the smelly nerd everyone runs away from. So haha, the jokes on you, I found you!

Well I hope this forum is just as interesting and educational as the other one! Hope to meet some new people and discuss many a topic.

May you all be well with the Dhamma. _/|\_

hi and welcome nice to meet you :hello:
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Thanks for the very warm welcome everyone! Greatly appreciated.

Yeah yeah, I don't get online very often. Maybe I will now. Too much work and such.
