Hello friends!

Post by lotus_in_the_hills » Wed Feb 18, 2009 2:48 am

One or two may recognize me from E-Sangha, though I have long since stopped posting there. I was tipped off by an anonymous comment on my blog and found my way here a few days ago! And, seeing as I could always use another distraction to keep me from working on my thesis, here I am :smile: I'm not sure if my old E-Sangha posts represent my worst writing or my best writing...but, hey, it counts for something right?....right?

Hi Lotus,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel. :smile:

I think I remember you from E-sangha. Is your thesis the one on C.A.F. Rhys Davids, or am I confusing you with someone else?

Best wishes,
Dhammanando Bhikkhu

Hello Bhante,

Yes, that was my MA thesis at SOAS :smile: I hope to return to the topic someday. My current (second) MA thesis is on Dalit converts to Buddhism in the 1930's.

Welcome lotus. Hope you find something useful here.

Also, I hope your thesis is not interrupted too often. :)

: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.
John Stuart Mill
