I finally decided to register, after already spending hours over many months dipping into wonderful conversations and teaching. I offer thanks to all other members and in particular to moderators for your wonderful work in keeping the forums focussed and polite. Namaste!

Thank you all for the very nice welcomes!

As user Ayu has replied to me, maybe I can ask here: I was at Gomde UK last week and I bought some Ayu jam - but I can't figure out what fruit that is. Google search on Ayu (even with + fruit) doesn't give me anything informative.

Anyone?

"Ayu" means "life" in Pali and Sanskrit.

You bought a life-jam maybe. :smile:

Hi Saraswati,

Welcome to DharmaWheel. Thanks for whetting my appetite for some of that jam! I look forward to trying it sometime myself.
As an aside, on one of our humble altar pieces is enshrined none other than Benzaiten (Saraswati) in our local sangha. So, you're very welcome in Alexandria, Virginia, USA anytime.
