Greetings everyone,

I'd just like to announce that today, after only a few days of operation, we've hit the 50 member mark.

I would like to personally thank everyone who has taken an interest in the site so far and I look forward to discussing the Dhamma with you.

Thank you for your support.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Hi Retro. :D , (and Ben.)

Nice place you have hear. I hope it's a huge success. As you know i'm a zen head, so i'm not sure how appropriate some of the discussion will be to my practice, but i will certainly drop by regularly.

Nice to see two of the very best, most level headed and compassionate people on the web strike out on thier own.

Good luck! Take care, Karl.

Thanks Paul, Bhante, Karl and all

It been a humbling experience to see the rapid interest, the growing company of old and new friends gather around to discuss and learn about that which we love most of all.
Karl, let me tell you that you are more than welcome here at the Dhammawheel.

Really, Ben, you all have created a wonderful space. I'm here thanks to a personal invitation from Retro, otherwise i never would have found the location. I sent that info on to bukowski and a few others inviting them over. I would strongly encourage you all to send personal invitations to dhamma friends who you think might benefit from the community here, and have something positive to add. A lot of non-Theravadan Buddhists we know would very much enjoy the company and conversation here I think, but may be a little hesitant about coming over and posting unless personally invited. For most actually there is no other way to find out about the Wheel's existance...!

A google search of the words "Dhamma Wheel" produces 180,000 results, with dhammawheel.com showing on the first page in numbers 3 and 4. One time I did it and it was at #1.

Googling "Dhamma forum" produces 2.1 million results with dhammawheel.com in the #2 position.

All this and we have not been "open" for even one month yet! :buddha1: :group:

This has been on my mind all day. What excellent news it is!
Just to reiterate what Retro has said, thank you to you all for making Dhamma Wheel a welcoming and respectful environment in which to discuss the Dhamma of the Buddha.
