Ben - Global Moderator

Postby retrofuturist » Thu Jan 01, 2009 5:03 am

Greetings everyone,

I am pleased to announce that Ben has decided to act as a global moderator here with us at Dhamma Wheel.

As he mentioned in his personal introduction, he is an experienced Theravadin Buddhist of over two decades and having worked alongside him before, I can say he is an excellent moderator and will be a great asset to this community.

Please join me in welcoming Ben to this position.

Metta,
Retro. :)
“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

I am sooooo happy - How on earth could I be otherwise?! :D
