    Any suggestions for a discussion topic?
    I wonder if we could talk about ways of recognising attachment, and how to deal with this?

    I think the topic is an excellent idea.

    Here are two passages of the Pali Canon:

    Many thanks to Element, PhillyG, and Woodscooter for coming to chat about the topic . Apologies for the problems with my video link, hopefully I'll be able to get it sorted out by next week.

    I also hope more BWB members will turn up next week, because I think the discussions are informative and helpful for our general practice, as well as a nice way of getting to know each other.

    The next online meeting will be on 8th May, at the usual time.

    In the past, the internet connection to Aloka has not been very good and this results in Aloka hearing distorted speech, odd whistles and loss of video from other participants.

    I have tried my technical best to improve matters, and this week's meeting will be the one to judge whether it's now any better. Therefore, I would ask everyone in the meeting to be aware that Aloka might still be affected by connection problems. At some point I may ask everybody to mute, and only un-mute when speaking, to see what difference that could make.

    It is essential that Aloka can see and hear as clearly as everyone else, and I hope that this week will be a successful meeting.

    The meeting will be at:

    1pm PDT
    3pm CDT
    4pm EDT
    5pm ADT
    9pm BST
    10pm CEST
    1.30am IST
