I am not trying to start it again!
I think Dhamma Wheel should have a section (perhaps without the lounge) for Dhammic life similar to Dharmic life in Dharma Wheel Engaged.
I do not think this is not irrelevant to the Dhamma and people will not start fighting with each other with different opinion.
This will make the forum more softer and non-rigid and more practical.

Greetings Sarath,

We already do. In fact, that DWE section was modelled on DWT's Dhamma Life section.

Sorry, I did not see that.
Do you think it is a good idea to have a forum for Charity and Dana?

That depends... what is it that one is wishing to give?

If it pertains to engaged samsaric goals, then DWE covers that well.

If we take seriously the Dhamma of the Buddha and see that...
Dhp 178 wrote:Sole dominion over the earth,
going to heaven,
lordship over all worlds:
the fruit of stream-entry
excels them.
... then one's charity and dana is likely to come under the banner of Dhammaduta.

We will be slightly flexible in practice, but if you first ask yourself "Is there anything inherently Theravadin, about what I want to discuss?", then the best place to discuss it should make itself clear to you.

Perhaps people can share there Dana activities or even promote the opportunity for participation in Dana activity.
