I have been troubled by negative thoughts in my mind for while, until I started looking into Buddhism and following Sakyamuni Buddha's path to end suffering. Theravada has and still is helping me greatly sustain inner peace through dedicated meditation. Also of course, following the Eightfold Path and reminding myself of verses from the Dhammapada.

It is great that I came across a forum containing other dedicated followers of Theravada. I look forward to learning more from all of you.

Hi Jacksin and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.


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...
