Hello ^_^
« on: November 20, 2016, 12:42:22 pm »
Hi everyone,

My name's Ollie, although my Buddhist name is Shinkai (心海). I'm 22 and from Kent, England. I've been practicing meditation for about 8 years, and have mostly been involved with the Zen tradition, although I'm fairly familiar with most forms of Buddhism and meditation. I look forward to forum-ing with you :)

Hi, Ollie.

Welcome.  I think that I have already read and responded to one of your posts.  Look forward to reading more from you.

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.
