Greetings once more

Postby Jayantha-NJ » Thu Dec 06, 2012 11:58 am

Metta everyone,


I use to be on here as Ferox a year or two ago. Since that time I took the 8 lifetime precepts with Bhante G at Bhavana Society and was given the Pali name Jayantha. I continue to get deeper into my practice and have the intention to renounce in about a year. I just remembered this community and decided to come back to learn and also give whatever small wisdom I have. While this community can often times get off track and overly disputatious, I cannot deny how much I learned in my short months here last time.

looking forward to studying and practicing dhamma with you all,

Jayantha

to practice patience with others rough speech, perceive there words as only sound, patience is the path to nibbana.

Welcome back, and best wishes.

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...
