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,

“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)”
