Greetings all, and thanks to Retro for setting up this new board.
So, for those who don't know me, I'm a Theravadin bhikkhu, living at the Marble Temple in Bangkok and currently studying Abhidhamma at Wat Rakhang and (starting next month) teaching Vinaya at Benchamabophitr College. I was born and raised in England, but have been an ex-patriate for the last 23 years. I have studied and practised with teachers in a number of the sub-traditions of the Theravada, but currently lean mostly towards rigorous Burmese-style pariyatti, and gentle Thai-style practice (especially as exemplified in the satipatthana teachings of the late Acharn Naeb).

Greetings venerable Dhammanando,
Excellent to have you on board. I'm hoping we'll be able to get a few more members... even just enough to have a sustainable little group going on. Unfortunately critical mass seems to be a big challenge for discussion boards. Hopefully there's enough interest in a Theravadin board for this to get up and running. If you know anyone else who might be interested, please feel free to share the URL with them.
