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.

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

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

Welcome, k4karma!

Happy new year!

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.
-Dhp 5

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)
