Hello!

Postby Shanti » Thu May 24, 2012 5:22 am

Hi there. It's great to be here and to meet all of you. I grew up in a very Catholic home for a while with my adopted parents. I studied Buddhism after my nana gave me a book written by His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama. I began to meditate and read a lot of Buddhist texts. My mom is a Buddhist and she's taught me a lot about the dharma. After a lot of study on many world religions, I've found that Buddhism is the best spiritual path for me. It simplifies my life and brings me a lot of peace.

I look forward to getting to know you all.

Greetings Shanti,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha1:

Metta,
Retro. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

Neither traceable in the Discourses nor verifiable by the Discipline, one must conclude thus: 'Certainly, this is not the Blessed One's utterance; this has been misunderstood by that bhikkhu — or by that community, or by those elders, or by that elder.' In that way, bhikkhus, you should reject it. (DN 16)

Thank you for this link! I'm still discovering which school suits me best, so I will definitely give that a look.

Thank you all for the welcome. :)
