Mod Team - Coming and Going

Post by Queequeg »

Pardon the belated announcement:

Please welcome the newest member of the Mod Team, long time member, Jake.

Also, thank you to Seeker12 and Virgo who have stepped down.

Round of applause. :cheers: :applause: :group:
Those who, even with distracted minds,
Entered a stupa compound
And chanted but once, “Namo Buddhaya!”
Have certainly attained the path of the buddhas.

-Lotus Sutra, Upaya Chapter

純一実相。実相外。更無別法。法性寂然名止。寂而常渉照名観。
There is only reality; there is nothing separate from reality. The naturally tranquil nature of dharmas is shamatha. The abiding luminosity of tranquility is vipashyana.

Welcome Jake.
There's no hoarding what has vanished,
No piling up for the future;
Those who have been born are standing
Like a seed upon a needle.

Mod team changes. Please welcome Anders and narhwal90 to the moderating team. :smile:

I'd like to offer a very big thank you to Queequeg, who has stepped down after being a moderator since April 2016. :smile:


(QQ, It'll take a while to get used to your user name not being green! :lol: )

Just a small update. Me and dear Hazel have taken up the duty of modding this wonderful place. Please be nice (to us and each other) and pray that the awesome power won't get into our heads. :tongue:

goodness is what comes to pass.
For those who do non-virtuous actions,
that becomes suffering indeed.

My brain fell out years ago so there should be plenty of room for power.
