Greetings from Brazil

Postby Biija » Mon Sep 23, 2013 10:52 pm

Hello everyone!

Needless to say that this is my first postage at DhammaWheel.Com, but I've been here as a visitor many, many times and I've always been benefited. I thank everybody for sharing their knowledge.

Here in Brazil, we have a huge Japanese community and for that reason the Mahayana Buddhism is more common among us. Our Theravada community is way smaller. Currently, as far as I know, there are only two Brazilian monks in Southern Asia, more precisely in Thailand, and recently other two Brazilians are also living there, but as anagarikas, obviously. That's what I know and if everything goes well I'll be the next one to walk through this path.

I prefer to allow things to happen before providing you with any further details. For now, I want to express my thanks again, because this place has been a great source of information about monastic life and Theravada Buddhism in general. I wish I had the opportunity to contribute here in the future.

That's all folks! Best wishes! :hello:

Greetings Biija from Brazil!

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel and thanks for saying hello.

Metta,

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)
