Hello all. I'm afraid that as a complete beginner, I don't have much to offer but I shall read your posts with great interest. There are several posters here whose erudition and insight I've been astonished by on other sites and it's good to see that you're still posting; you can be assured that your writing is appreciated.

Hi Lampang

Welcome, and please feel free to contribute!
Kind regards

Ben

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

hi and welcome hope to see you about!
“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.”

Greetings Lampang,

Thanks for joining us and I look forward to your questions and contributions.

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)
