Hello from India

Postby Sanjay PS » Thu Sep 26, 2013 2:54 pm

Hello,

Am from India and consider myself very fortunate to get Dhamma at the age of 28 ( 43 year old man now , still quite very ignorant ) , when i was at one of the lowest points of my life { saying one of the lowest , because the future may well bring about any kind of swings :-) }

Looking back to early childhood , i find the seeds were very much in place and yet ignorance was also very very very strong. Some good parmita raised its head in time , and from an indifferent person to either the good or the bad , i have dipped in, to an extent , in completely understanding that we are entirely responsible of our own predicament , and it is wise to do good as much as possible before time runs out.

Grateful to the Buddha , the Dhamma and Sangha , in extending their infinite compassion , when I had almost given up hope . The first course done in March 1998 was life changing ,and Goenkajis metta, was like an all enveloping wave that embraced, soaked and drenched every pore of the body and mind.....

i am grateful to one and all..........

Welcome Sanjay!

To practice is to know your defilements,
