Hello erveryone,

I'm 21 years old and living near Lake Chiemsee in southern Germany (Bavaria). I heard about this forum in the german "Buddhaland". I've been following some of the topics here for a few days now and thought I might as well register. So here I am :)

Greetings to all of you :anjali:
Let it come. Let it be. Let it go.

Hi Mogallana
Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

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.

Sutta Nipata 3.725

Greetings and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!


Retro. :)
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

Exalted in mind, just open and clearly aware, the recluse trained in the ways of the sages:
One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7

Herzlich Wilkommen, Moggallana!

Ich wohne in der Nähe von Saarbrücken(in Frankreich).

-Samāhitam cittam yathābhutam pajānāti.

समाहितं चित्तं यथाभूतं पजानाती |

A concentrated mind sees things as they really are.

-Ujuko nāma so maggo, abhayā nāma sā disā.

उजुको नाम सो माग्गो, अभया नाम सा दिसा |

'Straight' is this path, fearlessness is its way.

Hallo und ein herzliches moin,moin an dich.

With best wishes

Only in a vertical view, straight down into the abyss of his own personal existence, is a man capable of apprehending the perilous insecurity of his situation; and only a man who does apprehend this is prepared to listen to the Buddha's Teaching.
