Hello Buddha Buddies.

Postby AJungianIdeal » Thu Dec 26, 2013 9:22 am

Hello, I probably should've introduced myself before I started posting...

I'm a 22 yr old Texan, born Christian of course and still fond enough of it. I had struggles of faith and recurrent depression and death anxiety and now I'm investigating Buddhism because it seems to allow simplicity and complexity at the same time, and shamefully enough, is less "challenged"

I was introduced to Buddhism on another forum in a very thoughtful thread, and decided to join more specialized discussion avenues.

I'm fond of Psychology as my name implies and am confilicitngly skeptical and filled with a yearning for "something more" than shear materialism.

Welcome! I hope you find your time here helpful!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

Welcome AJungianIdeal!

:anjali:
Buddhaṃ saraṇaṃ gacchāmi
Dhammaṃ saraṇaṃ gacchāmi
Saṅghaṃ saraṇaṃ gacchāmi


Hatred is never appeased by hatred in this world; by non-hatred alone is hatred appeased. This is an eternal law.

Welcome from a fellow Texan!!!

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

Hello. :hello:

Unfettered at last, a traveling monk,
I pass the old Zen barrier.
Mine is a traceless stream-and-cloud life,
Of these mountains, which shall be my home?
