tiltbillings and samvega

Post by MoesTavern » Tue Nov 29, 2011 9:45 pm

Im following the discussion about the satipathana sutta in the study group forum. Many interesting comments are made by tiltbillings and samvega and now I wonder who you two are? I ve been trying to search you in the introduction forum but have not succeeded. Most of my browsing of the forum is through a cellphone that has a few shortcomings so pardon me if I ve missed something. Anyway, my question is this: what are your credentials? Humble students of the Dhamma - or some kind of official teacher role?

Definitely no a teacher; naught more than the humblest of student who has been at this for about over 40 years. And that thnak you for the kind words.
