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!

“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”

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
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!
