Hellooooo!

Postby piper » Mon Jan 12, 2009 6:03 pm

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:

Cheers!

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. :)

Welcome.

hi
“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.”

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.
