I like the people but there aren't enough Theravadans!

Theravadans are people too, you know  :teehee:

I find this remark exclusionary and offensive to hedgehogs.
Are all hedgehogs Theravadan?


Only the good ones  :D

I have it bookmarked on my phone.

I don't get much time to look on the Internet and I spent a long time looking at various Buddhist forums before I joined here without joining any.

I liked the way members on this generally engaged with each other and their seems to be less people (although it's not devoid of them altogether) insuating they have some kind of attainment than on other Buddhist forums, here it seems to be more like we're all chipping in and learning from each other so yes, all in all I like Freesangha a lot.

My only real gripe is that personally I think there are too many topics and it takes a while to look through them all, but that's not meant to be negative it's just a pain in the bum when you have limited time. Other than that it's all good.

I just want to say a quick thankyou to those of you that have made me welcome here at Freesangha.

Alas, I have decided that the reasons I didn't join a Buddhist forum for so long have been justified in my short time here and it is with that in mind that I bit you farewell as I leave to concentrate on my practice.

Thankyou.

Thank you.

Well, there can't be a better reason than that!
Warning: I'm enough of a fundamentalist Tibet style Buddhist to believe that for the last 1,000 years Tibet has produced a handful of enlightened masters in every generation. I do not ask that YOU believe it, but it will greatly simplify conversations if you understand that about me. Thanks.

This is the only Buddhist Message Board I've joined, but it's an okay place.

This is pretty much the only board I've joined and I must say, It's a great site. Bookmarked. A nearly constant open tab.

I love reading the comments, debates, etc. I've learned a lot through this site.

Many thanks to the good people who run this site. To enhance the ol' self-cherishing attitude, you totally rock.

If you are in my area, I make a great vegan mushroom & wild rice pilaf. If you are in Caz's neighborhood, he serves tea and biscuits. But we haven't figured out the snack options for such an international crowd.

I am brand new to this forum as of today....In the 90's I belonged to one forum and
it was awesome for the chat back and forth about various authors and books read
along with personal stories of our practice and personal land mines that we have
run into during our practice.  What has happened in the past 13 years is that YouTube
has so many tubes that relate to the authors and speakers along with meditation music,
both guided and not guided.  You can spend hours on the YouTube going from
tube to tube and end up with a hunger that is not shared with anyone...I miss the
sharing of members and then made the decision to join up....I have only read a few
posts and will reserve any feedback until I get my feet wet here at Freesangha....
