Hello

Postby thansz » Mon Apr 09, 2012 10:02 pm

Hi,

I came across this site a while ago during my investigations of Buddhism. While I'm currently not a buddhist, I find many of the teachings useful and believe the Theravada teachings to be about as close to what the Buddha probably taught (although I am no scholar). I found this to be a very helpful site and enjoyed many of the postings here. Members seem very helpful and some member postings have definitely made me rethink certain positions.

So I just wanted to introduce myself and say hi to the group!

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

Welcome thansz!

“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
