I am a Chan student who has practised with various people in the tradition of Master Sheng Yen for a few years. I'm Canadian but live in Taiwan at the moment. I arrived here to post on the events board but didn't want to make that my only post.

Hi,  myj.

Welcome aboard.  Look forward to reading your posts.

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.
