I've been an informal student of the Buddha's teachings for the past 18 or so years and have only in the last few been able to attend services at local temple and be an active sangha member.  I'm excited to have this opportunity to reach out to and learn from a wider community of students of the dharma.

Welcome to all new FreeSangha members.  Look forward to reading your posts and responding to your questions.

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.
