Hi from Melbourne

Post by jrh001 » Sat Jan 24, 2009 5:03 am

Greetings to all,

I may not post here often but will drop in to read and learn.

I've registered to show my support for this new venture. I trust that those who contribute their knowledge and wisdom will always remember the importance of compassion.

best wishes,

JohnH :coffee:

Welcome John
Yes, compassion, mutual respect and friendliness are some of the underlying values of Dhamma Wheel.

“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.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Welcome
:hello:
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.
