Hi from Retrofuturist

Postby retrofuturist » Tue Dec 30, 2008 10:13 pm

Greetings everyone,

I'm a Theravadin Buddhist of approximately 3 years and most well known on the Internet to people through my participation at E-Sangha where I used to be a Global Moderator. I've also spent some time too amongst the rough and tumble of BuddhaChat.

I think this site has great potential so I would encourage people to invite all their Dhamma friends along to discuss the Dhamma.

Retro. :)

I am sooooo happy - How on earth could I be otherwise?! :D

Yes, thank you Paul. And Happy New Year to you and your family.

"As Buddhists, we should aim to develop relationships that are not predominated by grasping and clinging. Our relationships should be characterised by the brahmaviharas of metta (loving kindness), mudita (sympathetic joy), karuna (compassion), and upekkha (equanimity)."
