Daverupa ~ global moderator!

Post by retrofuturist » Fri Jan 17, 2014 10:08 pm

Greetings all,

Please join me in welcoming daverupa as a global moderator here at Dhamma Wheel.

I believe that Dave's knowledge, temperament and sincere dedication towards both his Dhamma practice and this forum will make him a valuable asset to the moderation team.

Thanks for coming on board Dave, and a public thank you to the rest of the team who have been putting in extra efforts over the past month and a half to cover for Ben's absence.

Metta,
Retro. :)

congratulations dave!
Aflame with the fire of passion, the fire of aversion, the fire of delusion.
Aflame, with birth, aging & death, with sorrows, lamentations, pains, distresses, & despairs ......

Good choice. :)

Good luck. :)
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.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)
