In order to enable all Buddhist practitioners to share their perspectives and insights in relation to world events, regardless of their political orientation
, we have created a News, Current Events & Politics
section for your use.
Modelled on the analogous section at the Dharma Paths
forum, the News, Current Events & Politics
area will house much of the subject material that previously found its way through to the Lounge. If for any reason you find discussion on news, current events and politics to be a disturbance to your practice, you are welcome to contact myself or David and we will hide this forum from your view so you can customise your Dhamma Wheel experience more effectively.
In conjunction with this change, the Engaged Buddhism (左翼佛教
) section has been dissolved, with its existent topics moved across to the appropriate sections of the forum.
If you have any questions about these changes, by all means please ask.

“One to whom it might occur, ‘I’m a woman’ or ‘I’m a man’. Or ‘I’m anything at all’— Is fit for Mara to address.” (SN 5.2)
