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!

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, 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?
