Dhammanando - Global Moderator

Post by retrofuturist » Thu Jan 01, 2009 11:44 am


I am thrilled to be able to announce that venerable Dhammanando has decided to join us here at Dhamma Wheel in the capacity of a Global Moderator.

Venerable Dhammanando is the most learned bhikkhu I know and I have a deep respect for him. I know there are others here amongst us who feel similarly about venerable Dhammanando, so please join me in congratulating venerable Dhammanando on his appointment and making him welcome in his new role within our community.

Retro. :)

In the capacity of general expert and Teacher, I can think of nobody better, really!

Congratulations Ajahn!
I am looking forward to working with you again.
Kind regards

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Congrats Ajahn
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

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.

Thanks in advance for your time and your insight.
