Tashi Delek from Connecticut!

Postby Dhondup » Fri Dec 14, 2012 6:26 am

Hello everyone! I'm a male in my early twenties studying Vajrayana. I'm currently observing the 5 precepts and hoping to ordain in the near future. I am also studying Tibetan, and I'd like to make my life's work participating in the translation of the Kangyur. I'm glad to be a member of this forum and i hope each and every one of you have a spectacular day!

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Welcome Dhondup!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.
