Well done, Greg, and thank you for the service to the members. You are a stalwart here, and I think you will bring some fresh ideas.

Thank you kindly people!

Clears throat... ahem!

My aim here as moderator at DW is to be as obnoxious and ultra-orthodox as I normally am and to stiffle any free and intelligent conversations...

Hey, you! Up the back there. Why are you sniggering?

...

Seriously though, I hope that I will be capable of helping DW to grow and develop.

Thanks for stepping up to help around here

Everyday problems teach us to have a realistic attitude.
They teach us that life is what life is; flawed.
Yet with tremendous potential for joy and fulfillment.
~Lama Surya Das~

If your path teaches you to act and exert yourself correctly and leads to spiritual realizations such as love, compassion and wisdom then obviously it's worthwhile.
~Lama Thubten Yeshe~

One whose mind is freed does not argue with anyone, he does not dispute with anyone. He makes use of the conventional terms of the world without clinging to them

Congrats!
The essence of a real practice is to bring our intellectual understanding to the level of our heart - so as to feel it - to live it!

It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."

May any merit generated by on-line discussion

With moderator power comes moderate responsibility?

Congrats Greg!
