Re: Post editing

Greetings Elohim, I kindly suggest that moderators stop editing posts so often. Let us read what people have to say. To the best of my knowledge, posts only get edited when people's posts do not adhere to the Terms Of Service... in which case, they shouldn't have said what they said in the first pla...

Re: Clarification needed

Greetings Dazzle, Comments like this are just nonsense... BhaktaGlenn: The methodology of Gayatri Mantra and Theravadin Buddhist Meditation are very different but, union with Brahma is achieved in both systems.

They told us to wait until it rained and to let them know if there were any leaks or problems with it. It took a while for it to rain and then it did leak... oh boy. Now after three months of hassling ...
