hi everybody

Postby SamBodhi » Sat Dec 24, 2011 11:06 am

I am pung S. I got the name from a friend of mine trying to say "punk" when he had a cold. I just sort of stole it as a screen name here. I used to be something of a regular at a few other forums and stuff. I am interested in monasticism and Theravada. I used to tell people that my Buddhist practice sort of sat right on the line between zen and Theravada with most of my being on the side of Theravada.

I hope to get to know everybody here.

Welcome pung S!

Welcome pung!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

Hi pung, good to have you here.

:anjali:
Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."

Hi pung S. Good to have you here. Look forward to reading your perspective. I also enjoy a Koan or Dharma talk from a good Zen master.

Buckwheat,
The Zen Center close to where I live is one of the few places I have to meditate with a Sangha. Unfortunately, there is no Theravada temple within a reasonable driving distance. Also, a good part of my reading has always been from Zen authors (Thich Nhat Hanh, Shunryu Suzuki, etc.) In fact, I just recently read a book called The Zen Teaching of Bodhidharma translated by Red Pine.
