Am happy to be here!

have been lurking and reading posts here for quite a while.

earlier this year I went to a monastery and took the panca sila, the five precepts. however, I did not memorise them, and did not repeat them again (though in English I reaffirm my vows everyday) and in the new year I vow to do it in pali everyday. this year (2014) I want to go deeper in Dhamma.

when I read the erudite replies I realise that though I may be more in years than some, in terms of Dhamma knowledge I do have a looooong way to go.

“What should be done for his disciples out of compassion by a teacher who seeks their welfare and has compassion for them, that I have done for you, bhikkhus. There are these roots of trees, these empty huts. Meditate, bhikkhus, do not delay or else you will regret it later. This is our instruction to you.” - MN 19

Welcome! Here is a link to the refuges and precepts in Pali: http://www.buddhanet.net/pali_chant.htm
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.
-Dhp. 183

hi k4karma and happy new year :namaste:
Aflame with the fire of passion, the fire of aversion, the fire of delusion.
Aflame, with birth, aging & death, with sorrows, lamentations, pains, distresses, & despairs ......

Seeing thus, the disciple of the Noble One grows disenchanted. SN 35.28

If you don't do the work now...
You'll have to do it later.

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?
Manan (1591-1654)
