Dear all, i am brand new at this forum, female, since approx. 15 years hooked to Buddha-Dhamma, since that time mostly living in monasteries in Theravadan countries as a homeless upasika. Good school in terms of letting go of the absolut useless idea how things should be (according to myself). Right now back in Germany because of family affairs. Fantastic test to see what one really has learned in all this years of trial and error.....warm greetings in Dhamma

This being is bound to samsara, kamma is his means for going beyond. -- SN I, 38.

There is freedom from birth, freedom from becoming, freedom from making, freedom from conditioning. If there were not this freedom from birth, freedom from becoming, freedom from making, freedom from conditioning, then escape from that which is birth, becoming, making, conditioning, would not be known here. -- Ud 80

Welcome Indriya! What an admirable way to live! :anjali:
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.
