Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.
Hello, my name's Simon and I come from the UK. I'm quite new to Buddhism - I've held an interest in it for many years, but only recently have I decided to dedicate myself to serious practice. I hope to learn from those on the forum with greater experience than myself and get to know nice people. Hello!

Good to meet you!

The watched mind brings happiness.
I am larger and better than I thought. I did not know I held so much goodness.

Beginnings are always interesting, full of the excitement of learning something new. It is good stuff. I hope this forum will be of interest and value to you. Feel free to ask questions and to engage in dialogue, if you wish. And welcome.
What is the use of his knowledge
pertaining to the number of insects in the whole world?
Rather, inquire into his knowledge of
that which is to be practised by us
This being is bound to samsara, kamma is his means for going beyond.

Níl sa saol seo ach ceo
There is naught in this life but mist
Is ní bheimid beo ach seal beag gearr.
And we will not be alive but a short hard time.
