Hi, thank you for letting me be a part of your list. Though primarily a reader, I joined in order to preserve at least the possibility of posting at some point, if that door should open for me.  I found the list through a search on the dark night and found an interesting thread here on that subject.  At times the need for human contact with regard to spiritual matters gets the best of me, hence I awkwardly reach out.  I apologize ahead of time if that should happen here. :) Again, thank you.

Welcome.  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.

 :r4wheel: Greetings! I've been following the teachings of the Buddha for decades, but only took Refuge in 2013. I came across this site by accident but the layout made me feel "at home"! I was given the Refuge Name of Thubten Sangpo.

Ron, Visuddhi Raptor, framptonm,
Thanks for your kind gereetings... ;)  Framptonm, I'm glad you found that "at home" feeling here.  It's a deep longing for all of us, I think, and a rare prize when it is encountered.  Peace to all of you.
