F.O.B

Postby BlackBird » Fri Apr 17, 2009 12:16 pm

Hello all

I've been posting on and off for a couple of years over at the other site. Recently came to feel dissatisfied with the way things are there at the moment, after consultation with a few, this forum here was alluded to, so here I am. I must say seeing a thriving community on the internet, dedicated to Theravada makes me a very happy man. I've just gotta remember not to get attached :tongue:

I see a lot of old faces here too, so I'm glad to see you haven't dissappeared :)

Greetings Jack,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha2:

Metta,
Retro. :)
What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)

Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'.
(Snp 3.6)

hi
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”
