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.
- 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.
