Welcome to Astus, Our New Mahayana Administrator

Postby Ngawang Drolma » Sat May 08, 2010 4:37 pm

I would like to extend a warm welcome to Astus, who is our new Mahayana Administrator. He joins us with a lot of forum experience and he's already added a lot to Dharma Wheel. So thanks Astus, and we look forward to continuing to see your interesting contributions!

Best,
Laura

May Astus' reign be one of great prosperity, honour and vigilance and may he defeat the Orcish hoards.

Now you will have to add the king's vows to your bodhisattvas's vows ...

By understanding that any and all mental activity is meditation, you are freed from arbitrary divisions between formal sessions and postmeditation activity.

Thanks guys!

May I receive the merits of past Cakravartins for the welfare of all and offer the merits gained for the peace and smashing discussions on DharmaWheel.
1 Myriad dharmas are only mind.
Mind is unobtainable.
What is there to seek?

2 If the Buddha-Nature is seen,
there will be no seeing of a nature in any thing.

3 Neither cultivation nor seated meditation —
this is the pure Chan of Tathagata.

4 With sudden enlightenment to Tathagata Chan,
the six paramitas and myriad means
are complete within that essence.

well done Astus... a big committment, may you find your job one that comes naturally.

best wishes, Tom.
in any matters of importance. dont rely on me. i may not know what i am talking about. take what i say as mere speculation. i am not ordained. nor do i have a formal training. i do believe though that if i am wrong on any point. there are those on this site who i hope will quickly point out my mistakes.
