Yes, that can be done. My son is the webmaster who set this all up for me. He can have that done in the next couple of days or less.

Re: Hello from Dhammanando

Hi Bhante and very happy to see you here. You have been a great resource over at e-sangha and probably other forums where you have posted. I mostly only had the time for e-sangha before and enjoyed your informative posts. I always remember our somewhat combative post exchanges (years ago) at first (...

Its an opportunity and adventure but one that comes with some mixed emotions and a fair amount of anxie...

Re: Modern Theravada description

So aside from #9 re: planes as mental states, there are no other doctrinal differences between modern & classical? Also I thought the suttas made clear that the jhanas (mental conditions) are doorways to the deva realms? So why would the classical think a meditative, mental doorway would lead t...

Re: Who's online?

When I made the forum show people's avatars and user information on the left side, it ended up messing up the ONLINE icon. I took it out altogether. Then you asked for it, so I realized there was demand for it. Today I figured out how to put it back, this time making the ONLINE button going vertical...

Re: Who's online?

It was an error in the code because when I was trying to fix the ONLINE image, I put another one on top of where it is forgetting to remove that code. It turned out to be a glitch with Internet Explorer. In Mozilla Firefox, it worked fine because the browswer removed the broken image. Mozilla Firefo...
