Hello!

Postby nomad » Sun May 10, 2009 1:10 am

Hello everyone! I’m a new student to Buddhism and I’m currently researching Tibetan and Zen, but I’m finding myself drawn to Theravada teachings. I’m also a member of another board and hope that the two can compliment by studies and help me find my own path. Nice to meet all of you!

Metta,

What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)

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)

Awesome! Thanks for the info. There are so many different schools of Buddhism that it's difficult to know what is right for me. So right now I'm just testing the waters of a variety of things. Thanks again!

Hi
“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.”
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.
"Others will misconstrue reality based on personal perspectives, firmly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our personal perspectives, nor firmly holding them, but easily discarded."
