After much deliberation I have decided to leave SuttaCentral. The reason is that I cannot combine it with the building of Tilorien monastery.
I thank you all for all the wonderful contributions to this forum and to the website and the support over all these years. It has been a privilege to work with you and get to know you.
With much metta and gratitude,
This is very sad news.
Thank you so much for all your contributions! We’ll miss you!!
I can’t say I “like” this post… still I have to click the like button somehow.
But why so radical? Can’t you just take a break or so… ?
Of course, your decision, not mine…
Thank you for your hard work and collaboration .
You’ll be missed venerable!
Thank you for building a new place for the world to come visit and practice the Dhamma at Tilorien.
Thank you for all the work you have done at Sutta Central and may all your aspirations reach their intended goal.
Thank you Ven @Vimala for your amazing contribution.
Dear Ayya Vimala,
The very best wishes for your next adventure in the Dhamma
Thank you for the wonderful example you have set, through all your hard work, wisdom, perseverance and kindness.
I look forward to watching Tilorien grow (with lots of updates here)!!
May you and all beings be free of suffering
Thank you for your great contribution to Sasana.
You still have not leave us if I am not mistaken.
Dearest Ayya, you are a true friend and a practitioner of dedication and integrity. Your contributions to SuttaCentral, and daresay the sasana, have been incomparable. We will always miss you, and if you ever want to return, the invitation is always open.
Dear Ven. Vimala: I’m not sure you can ever truly “leave” something in which your technical DNA and so much care and effort is invested, as has been the case with SC. But, at the end of the day, many of us know the feeling of understanding the limits of our energy and focus, and certainly opening and operating Tilorien will take much of your time and your many talents.
So, as I mentioned at Pioneertown a year or so ago, I’ll hope to show up at Tilorien one day with a rake or a paintbrush. Until then, be well, happy and peaceful. Michael
Dear Ayya Vimala,
Thank you for your contribution and hard work for SC, especially for coding many translations for us. I hope you will come back after the building of Tilorien monastery finished.
Thank you and may you and Tilorien monastery be lights to the world.
I do understand. There are just too many things going on for you right now, and you need to prioritise. So good on you for making that hard decision.
The problem, if that’s the right word, is that you are too good at too many things. You have a kind of Dhammic Midas touch. Everything you do brings the sāsana forward.
Yet you are a super-duper asset to SuttaCentral. It is too much to hope to see back again once you get other priorities out of the way?
Dear Ayya, Sending you best wishes with the Tilorien monastery project. Thank you so very much for your friendship. SuttaCentral will miss your presence. Please do keep in touch. xox
Thanks for your contribution in SC especially for help to submit my work. I hope you will come back ASAP.
