Hello from New Hampshire, USA

Postby SittingSilent » Wed Dec 05, 2012 11:46 pm

Hi, I'm a 26 year old guy on the autism spectrum finding myself drawn to Buddhism. I've felt this inclination for years and now I'm trying to learn more and become a more serious practitioner. I'm currently reading a book of discourese about the Pali Canon.

Welcome! May you find what you're looking for!

Greetings SittingSilent,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha1:

I hope you find the site and the Dhamma in general to be of value to you.

Metta,
Retro. :)
“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)”

Welcome SittingSilent,

Glad to meet you at here at this forum, I have been busy lately and neglected my sitting, only restarted sitting a week or so ago thanks to a InsightTimer app that I found for my Android phone and after a couple of days the consistency wasn't there again.

May you and all be well and fruitful :namaste:
