Hello from Mexico

Postby dilexi » Sat Aug 15, 2009 4:09 am

Hello,
I'm a North American living in Mexico. I've been practicing Insight meditation for a few years now with teachers who have done teacher training at Spirit Rock in Northern California. While in Mexico, I've also been studying a little bit of Tibetan Buddhism.
I came across this forum while looking for advice on how to find some specific teachings of the Buddha (having to do with social justice) and felt compelled to join. I miss my Theravada Sangha back home and am happy to discover this forum!

Hi And welcome
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.
"Others will misconstrue reality based on personal perspectives, firmly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our personal perspectives, nor firmly holding them, but easily discarded."
