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!
'Buddhistboy' is my username, even though I want to make it perfectly clear that I am not a boy. I am an adult.

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

Interesting username! :D

Pain exists, suffering is optional.
His pain, your gain.
No pain, no gain.
etc., etc.
