Namaste

Postby Dharmagirl » Thu Apr 10, 2014 12:11 am

Namaste all,

I'm Raven, from Sydney Australia. I have been "practising" Buddhism for about 8 years. I sincerely committed to Buddhism two and a half years ago. I attend a local Sangha when time and mobility permits (I have a brain disease that affects my motor skills and speech) and I love discussing the teachings and learning from others. I look forward to getting to know you and hopefully being able to contribute meaningfully to the conversation.

In metta,
Raven

Greetings Raven and welcome to DW!

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Welcome!

:anjali:
“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, Raven,
Aussies are well represented here on DW, from Ben in Tassie to me (currently cyclone watching) in the far north, but not many, as far as I know, from Sydney.
Not that it matters much, of course. We all live just on the other side of your computer screen, don't we?

Greetings from Melbourne!

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha1:

Metta,
Retro. :)
"Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'."
(Snp 3.6)

"Whether I were to preach in brief, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach in detail, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach both in brief or in detail, Sāriputta, rare are those who understand." (A I 333, Sāriputtasutta)
