Dhammanando - Global Moderator

Postby retrofuturist » Thu Jan 01, 2009 11:44 am


I am thrilled to be able to announce that venerable Dhammanando has decided to join us here at Dhamma Wheel in the capacity of a Global Moderator.

Venerable Dhammanando is the most learned bhikkhu I know and I have a deep respect for him. I know there are others here amongst us who feel similarly about venerable Dhammanando, so please join me in congratulating venerable Dhammanando on his appointment and making him welcome in his new role within our community.

Retro. :)

Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

In the capacity of general expert and Teacher, I can think of nobody better, really!

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

Congratulations Ajahn!
I am looking forward to working with you again.
Kind regards

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Congrats Ajahn

Thanks in advance for your time and your insight.
