Sorry I couldn't make it to the member bomb, had work.

Anyway thank you David and Retro, so very very much for all that you have done for us, I really mean it. Thank you Ven. Dhammanando, Ben and Tilt Billings for all your hard work in maintaining DW as a great place for discussion of the Dhamma. Thank you to all the members whom have helped to deepen my understanding of the Buddha Dhamma.

Truely I am indebted to you all for you kindness and compassion, your friendliness and you wisdom. Wherever I go in life (and I suspect for a long time it will be nowhere near a computer) I will carry these fond memories with me.

May we all realize the Dhamma
May Dhamma wheel continue to flourish

Metta
Jack :heart:

p.s. Great video Ben!

I get a message flashing;
"Caution: This man is wanted in 48 states of Australia, simply because he really should'n be confined to such a small Island: I mean, they have devils there, what they done to deserve him? He is a distinct individual, and should be approached with caution:
he has rapier wit, cutting-edge knowledge of the Dhamma and a sharp mind, not to mention being a mean hand with a bow and arrow. if you meet him, do yourself a favour: Stand behind him."

Anyone know anything about this? :tongue:

Love him to bits.

He's been a solid, supportive and generous friend to me, and (together with the rest of the team, Bless them!) is a real jewel in anybody's friend-box.
With an online community like this one guys, and with mutual support, Loving Kindness and companionship, it's the place to be, in twenty-ten...and onwards.....
Much metta amd Karuna to all...
Ben, Paul, Ven. Appichatto, Ven Dhammanando -
Thank you for everything.

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.

Wow, Ben, and that's on YouTube?

Congratulations to such a wonderful message!

I saw a lot of guests on-line today, so maybe this was helpful for some people to find us!

By mere coincidence (or not?) I zapped myself briefly into a documentary about Tasmania yesterday, and thought: Oh look, so this is where Ben lives....!

They showed the little black devils and talked about the catching tumur. What a pity. I couldn't watch all of it, but they spoke about the intact nature and I saw some beautiful scenic views Perhaps it gets repeated today, and I can watch more...

And: Honor to whom honor belongs: Fede wrote the witty post, but I wholeheartedly agree !! :woohoo:

Happy new Year!

Anna
