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:
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(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.”

Greetings and welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

Excellent to see you here.

Metta,

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.
