Hiya!

Postby Popo » Sat Aug 29, 2009 8:37 pm

The above is mean as "Hi yaw", not an attack word. :D

I'm sort of a new school Epicurean but I've had interest in Buddhism (especially Theravada) for what seems like a long time. I'm twenty-one and I live in Richmond...

So, hey. :heart:

Hi and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
“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."
