Hello from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA

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.

Metta,

If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)
