I found this board via Dharmawheel.org and it seems that my tendency for Buddhism is going to rooted in the Theravada tradition. Anyone else on here near to where I am by any chance?

Thanks :twothumbsup:

Greetings from San Antonio!

To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

Welcome friend! Please do post topics if you have any questions. The whole "Discovering Theravada" forum is super helpful. Also ffeel free to PM me as well and I can at least point you in the direction of someone who knows something.

I hope your stay is fruitful!
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.

Greetings, fellow Texan!

Try this link:

I tried using Plano as the keyword but nothing came back. But there are 5 Theravada locations in Dallas if you're willing to drive a bit...

Welcome!
