The symbolism of Wheels

"Do not force others, including children, by any means whatsoever, to adopt your views, whether by authority, threat, money, propaganda, or even education." - Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh

"The uprooting of identity is seen by the noble ones as pleasurable; but this contradicts what the whole world sees." (Snp 3.12)

"To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead" - Thomas Paine

Thanks for the great quotes from the Canon on wheels. Thus, here we are with the Dhamma WHEEL forum, turning the wheel some more, hopefully with some smooth rides.

A bodhisattva does not become weary of evil beings nor does he commit the error of bringing forth thoughts inclined to reject them and cast them aside. Avatamsaka Sutra, ch. 25

This a nifty feature. One need not reply to a thread to bump it up to the top of New Posts or Active Topics. At the bottom left of the page, near the Bookmarks button, is one for Bump Topic. Click on that and up and away it goes. :thumbsup:
