Hi all,

Nice forum!

A lot of familiar faces, or avatars rather. Some of you might know me from other forums, but I won't reveal my true identity. :spy:

Welcome piper ('charming' name by the way). Who knows one's true identity anyway? Image

As long as you know who you are, I guess that's what really counts. :)

This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Welcome Piper!
“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.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Greetings & welcome, Piper!

What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)
