Hello from Norway/England

Postby Parmenion » Wed Dec 05, 2012 12:24 am

Hello everyone! :)

Im a 25 year old Norwegian, currently studying in the UK (something that has presented a few challenges which I will post about in a seperate thread).
I used to practice mediation on its own when I was in my teens as it had a very calming effect in some turbulent times in my life, but the last few years I have also gotten a lot more into the Buddhist side of things, and so far (even though I am still a beginner) the Dhamma has brought much peace and compassion into my life. I look forward to learn and maybe contribute some if I can on this board with you all :)

With metta,

Alex

Greetings Alex,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha2:

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...
