Welcome squarepeg!

“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

Greetings squarepeg and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
kind regards,

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Hi squarepeg!
Good to see a Hoosier here :) I wasn't born or raised in Indiana but I lived in Fort Wayne for almost 18 years and so am only part Hoosier! If you live in some parts of Indiana i can see why you picked the name squarepeg. There are quite a few Buddhist groups (Mahayana: Zen and Tibetan) in Bloomington though. Welcome :)

Welcome! May you find what you're looking for!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.
