Greetings fellow seekers

Postby MtRaven » Sun Mar 11, 2012 9:12 pm

Hello!

Happy to have found this board. Happy to be doing anything actually, but this does add to it!

Have been meditating/seeking in a mostly dedicated and sometimes not so much way for a bit over twenty years. Primarily Theravadin/Vipassana path with forays into Zen (rather long foray actually) and Vajrayana. Back to my Theravadin roots the last year or so and recently very much reinvigorated by a couple of Goenka retreats.

Anyway, hello to you all and may love, happiness and peace fill all of your lives.

Steve

Hi MtRaven
welcome Aboard you might find the sister site of interest http://www.dharmawheel.net/ which is inclined toward the Mahayana and Vajrayana scope.
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Welcome Steve!

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

Hi Steve and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
“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.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
