Are you suggesting a topic, Zoom-meister?
I think you can choose Sam Vara. :anjali: :anjali:
I walked right into that one!

As we don't know who else is likely to attend, I suggest we talk about how we are relating our practice to the lockdown. Then we can go in lots of possible directions.

On the one hand I'm really glad this is going on (I've been away from Dhamma Wheel forEVer and am just come back); on the other hand that's 3 AM my time and even *I*, eternal nightowl, am not likely to be up at that hour (or alert, even if I was up). But it looks like these happen at different hours on different dates, so I will definitely stay tuned.

I just sooooo wish all my main Dhamma books weren't buried by stuff at the back of my storage space. Might have to brave the chaos and go in and dig them out. Since I moved there's not another thing in my storage space I've wished I had with me more times than I've wished I had the suttas...and Analayo's Satipaṭṭhāna: The Direct Path to Realization...

Oh, and just so everybody knows, Bhikkhu Bodhi (on Wednesday) and Bhikkhu Mangala (on Sunday) lead a meditation session over Zoom from Chuang Yen Monastery every Sunday and Wednesday at 7 PM New York time (currently UTC-4). And Bhikkhu Bodhi is also leading his course on the Anguttara Nikaya over Zoom on Saturdays starting at 9:30 AM New York Time. Details for both can be found on Chuang Yen's website at

Hello. Could I ask if there is any issue with limited places in these zoom meetings? I know that sometimes only a certain number of people can be on a call at one time.

No problem. I have a subscription which allows 100 plus.
( if an extra 95 members than the last few times suddenly turn up we might have a problem)

hi
I have to go out today for some supply buying due to a full time curfew coming down tonight for the next 3 weeks. Soo I will open the room for some discussion from 7:30 - 8 am AM Riyadh time (UTC +3 hours) (very soon). And then later today around 4pm Riyadh time (UTC +3 hours).
