Hello from Louisiana

Postby klasikos » Wed Aug 01, 2012 6:43 pm

Hi everyone,

I am a 25 y/o male from Southern Louisiana. I have a B.A. in International Studies and I'm currently working on my Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling. I've been very interested in Buddhism since a teenager and have done a fair share of meditation through my own personal practice. I've sat in on Shambhala and Vipassana groups here and there, but I definitely don't have a formal commitment to any tradition (yet). I look forward to getting to know everyone here and to learn and share with you all!

Thanks, David! I do think it is a good field! I am also quite interested in the relationship between Buddhism and Western psychotherapy, so that topic might come up at some point on a relevant board.

Welcome Klasikos!

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

Greetings Klasikos,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha2:

Metta,
Retro. :)
"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)

"Whether I were to preach in brief, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach in detail, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach both in brief or in detail, Sāriputta, rare are those who understand." (A I 333, Sāriputtasutta)
