I'd like to just quickly say that for a significant proportion of Dhamma Wheel members, for whatever reason, this
is our local Sangha. Therefore, the ordained members who frequent this site are the closest we have to resident bhikkhus and bhikkhunis, even though they themselves will (appropriately so) regard their local meatspace Sangha as their local community.
Nonetheless, to the laity here, the presence of ordained members of the Buddhasasana is a massive blessing and we recognise it as such.
Thank you to all Dhamma Wheel's ordained members and to our members who afford them due respect.
