Hello

Postby jayarava » Sat Jul 11, 2009 8:21 pm

I'm Jayarava from the Western Buddhist Order. I have a long term interest in the Pāli canon and know a little Pāli. I write a blog which frequently features a verse or two from a sutta upon which I comment. So not a Theravādin but with sympathy for that path, and a love of the scriptures.

Hello and welcome Jayarava! Could you kindly post a link to your blog? :)
-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.

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

The Pali Canon is great! I don't know where I'd be without it.

Greetings Jayarava,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

Metta,
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
