What Happened to Simon E ??

I noticed a while back he stopped posting...
I hope he is OK :heart:

I believe he came to his senses and resolved that this mutual prapanca society was not conducive to the spiritual path.

To paraphrase Marlon Brando, "The only reason I'm here is that I don't yet have the moral courage to turn down the prapanca."

:crying:
Those who, even with distracted minds,
Entered a stupa compound
And chanted but once, “Namo Buddhaya!”
Have certainly attained the path of the buddhas.

Yes, he's taking some time off.

I am finding it lonely as the only Grumpy Old Brit in the DW village. ;)

In a way, there might be a metaphor in there...

I'm not around much either, but have noticed that Simon had moved on. as far as I can see, he was beyond descriptions .... be well Simon.
