To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

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.

I like it!!

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

With both you, Paul and Cittasanto now bald, I feel like the pressure is on!
However, I think it would cause a bit of marital disharmony in my household.

Greetings David,

Nice look - reminds me a bit of Devin Townsend!

The increasing of baldheads here is enormous, seems like being moderator on Dhammawheel or Member has good effects. Much mudita!

Hi Yawares,

She is a fully-ordained Theravada bhikkhuni. She was an 8 precept mae chee for years and then became fully ordained in Northern California a couple of years ago. This was her blog, which she no longer maintains:
http://mitrasunya.blogspot.com/

It gives some of the background leading up to the ordination and her life. Now she is focusing on her practice and travels from country to country to different monasteries.

That meeting was with 3 Dhamma Wheel members, but no one has made any meeting yet that has broken the record in the OP yet! In the OP there is a photo of 4 Dhamma Wheel members!

Yes, it was a meeting of the mods. Two from dhammastudygroup and two from dhammawheel.
And very enjoyable and interesting. I could have stayed all day discussing more and more points of Dhamma .
