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.

True Buddha can’t be found.
Does marvelous nature and spirit
Need tempering or refinement?
Mind is this mind carefree;
This face, the face at birth."

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.
