Bodom returns as a Global Moderator

Post by retrofuturist » Sun Aug 07, 2016 12:17 pm

Greetings all,

Originally appointed a global moderator in 2010, I'm pleased to announce that bodom has decided to return to service here as a global moderator.

If you've been around the forum for a while, you'll already know what a valuable member of this community he is and what a fantastic temperament he has, and therefore why I'm so pleased to have him back on board.

Please join me in welcoming bodom back to the moderator team...

:thumbsup:

Metta,
Paul. :)

Thank you guys. In returning my only hope is to help Dhamma Wheel to continue to grow and to continue to be the most excellent resource that it is. We all owe Paul and David a great deal of debt for bringing this forum to life. It has been and continues to be a beacon of knowledge and source of inspiration for me and my practice and for countless others. Thank you all for being my brothers and sisters through this journey on the path.

Congrats and welcome back.

Welcome back! :smile:
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'

Welcome back to the role, Bodom.

The longer these Wheels keep turning, the more I think that what you're doing - to serve for a while, take a long break, and return - should become normal practice.

Awesome News :) :anjali: :anjali: :anjali:

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
