Hello Friends!

Postby bga » Mon Apr 29, 2013 3:18 am

My name is Brenna, I'm from Colorado, and I'm relatively new to all this though I have recently started meditating. I just want to express my gratitude in advance to all of you for establishing such a fantastic resource for the Theravada community! :anjali:

Hello helo helolo helllo ello...
Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

Hi Brenna and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
