Hello from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA

Postby nem » Thu Nov 22, 2012 5:38 am

Hello all!

I'm here to hear what you all have to say about the Dhamma and hopefully I can learn and help as needed too. So far, I've really benefited from reading the posts here. I have some background of about a year of daily sutta study and feel my meditation practice is okay at hour sitting sessions and some progress. Learning the Dhamma, has been transformational for me thusfar. I am thankful that the Bhudda illuminated this for us, and wish the best for each of you as well in this practice.

Greetings Nem,

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)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Never again...

Welcome to DW!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.
