Hello Keith
Nice to meet you
“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.”

Yippee! Keith's here!
Welcome mate!
“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.”

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Thanks.

As a Mahayanist, I probably won't have a lot to say here. However, I strongly believe that the Mahayana teachings really only make sense within the context of the Theravada teachings, so I like to stay in touch with Theravada sources.

Greetings Keith,

Wonderful to see you here, friend.

Are you sure you don't want to use your "hippy Keith" photo as your avatar? That pic is so cool. 8-)

Hi Keith,

Nice to see you around. :)

Best wishes,
Dhammanando Bhikkhu

    Evaṃ lokaṃ avekkhantaṃ, maccurājā na passati.

    One should see it as a bubble;
    One should see it as a mirage.
    Who regards the world thus
    The King of Death sees him not.

    ผู้ที่มองเห็นโลก ว่าไม่จีรังและหาสาระอะไรมิได้
    เช่นเดียวกับคนมองฟองน้ำและพยับแดด
    คนเช่นนี้พญามารย่อมตามหาไม่พบ ฯ

KeithBC,

It is great to see you here. Your posts over at the other forum were great! Your posts are always concise, directly to the point.

You have much to offer, as there are many forums that are not strictly Theravada and I am sure you could teach some of the Theravadins like me a thing or two, again!
