I just wanted to say thanks...

I may not have very much to contribute to discussions, but I just want to thank the admins, mods and members for all the information and help provided here. People dismiss the internet, but if it weren't for sites like this, I for one would be hard pressed to learn the things I am learning. Books are irreplaceable, sure, but they can't answer back when you ask a question. So to that end :bow:

flawless in manner and intelligent, such one will honor gain. - Digha Nikaya III 273

Perhaps you're wiser than some of us who can't help but say things when it would better to remain silent :smile: but I join you in your thanks.

The joy of truly gratefulness for all, I think is very necessary to realize the meaning of the Buddha.
Since it is said: only by the grace of all, we can recognize our nature. "Others are the means".

Thank you for the kind words.

I would like to underscore that the administrators here at DharmaWheel are exemplary in their roles, investing a great deal of time and energy into this project (especially for volunteers). I'd like to express my gratitude for this.

:cheers:

I'm going to add my thanks - hardly post, but I come here most days and am learning a lot. I suspect there are many people who never even join who benefit from this site :-)
