Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.
I'm new here, the name's darryl.
I'm interested in buddhism in general, and would like to explore it more.
Is this entire forum specifically about theravada buddhism?

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
Dhamma Wheel is for anyone who is interested in the Theravada. Our focus is predominantly Theravada.
If you are interested in the various schools of the Mahayana, I recommend our new sister-site: www.dharmawheel.net
If your interest is specifically Zen, then I recommend www.zenforuminternational.com
I hope to 'see' you around here!

Greetings and welcome Darryl!
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)'We should not congratulate someone on the success of their misdeeds, but on the contrary should endeavour to advise him or her to lead a more skilful and wholesome life. If such advice is ignored then we can only give up and let go' - Phra PanyapatipoDharma Wheel (Mahayana / Vajrayana forum)

This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!
Blog - Some Suttas Translated.
"Others will misconstrue reality due to their personal perspectives, doggedly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our own personal perspectives, nor doggedly holding onto them, but will discard them easily. This effacement shall be done."

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel
not worrying about
the past and the future,
