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.

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.
