A big, big world
« on: November 23, 2016, 07:01:35 pm »
Hello, I enjoy learning about religions, and always seeking truths. I and I am rastafarI, but have studied buddhism since a very young age. I am joining this online community to learn from perspectives.

Hi, Michael.

Welcome.  Feel free to ask and share with any of us.

What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
-Dhammpada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.
