It was two weeks ago today that Dhamma Wheel came into existence. From its inception 14 days ago, we now have in excess of 1,500 posts in over 200 topics by 100 members. The rapid growth of Dhamma Wheel is indicative of the interest in a discussion forum devoted to the Theravada.
On behalf of our members, I would like to thank TheDhamma, Retrofuturist, and Ajahn Dhammanando who were all instrumental in the Dhamma Wheel's formation. Without them, the Dhamma Wheel would not have been created.
I would also like to thank, you, our members. Many of you we know personally through other Buddhist discussion boards who have decided to join us in this little corner of samsara to discuss and discover the Dhamma. Some of you are new to all of us and may have heard about us through google searches or word of mouth. Thank you for joining us!
It is my contention that a discussion board owes many of its successes and few of its failures to its members, not its administrators.
Thank you for your patronage, your support and your contributions.
May we never lose sight of why we are here.
Through our efforts, may all beings be happy.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
