Humble greetings

Postby Valix » Sat Aug 16, 2014 7:38 pm

Greetings to all.

I've been aware of the Buddha's teachings for quite some time and now I have started practising them since not so long ago. It's been a long time coming, but I'm glad I finally took more serious steps towards practising Theravada Buddhism.
I must admit however that I'm still far from attaining true peace, though it's a process I'm more than willing to endure and enjoy.

Thus I am glad to have joined Dhamma Wheel, for it seems this forum is filled with kind and wise people.
I hope to gain wisdom and friendship from getting to know some of you over time and hope that in time I will be able to impart some wisdom of my own.

With metta,
Valix
- As a tree, even though it has been cut down, is firm so long as its root is safe, and grows again, thus, unless the feeders of thirst are destroyed, the pain of life will return again and again.

- Let a wise man blow off the impurities of himself, as a smith blows off the impurities of silver one by one, little by little, and from time to time.

Welcome Valix!

You have come to a good place full of friendly advice. Never worry if some grumpy old men occasionally sound harsh. They all mean well.

If you go through the various discussions, you'll find many valuable links to texts and .pdfs worth studying.

There are also kind Bhikkhus participating in Dhamma Wheel who are ready to answer your questions (but check the forums first).

May you and all beings be happy!

Welcome!

“What should be done for his disciples out of compassion by a teacher who seeks their welfare and has compassion for them, that I have done for you, bhikkhus. There are these roots of trees, these empty huts. Meditate, bhikkhus, do not delay or else you will regret it later. This is our instruction to you.” - MN 19
