Hiya!

Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.

Hiya!

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

Greetings Popo,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

Metta,
Retro. :)
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)


Exalted in mind, just open and clearly aware, the recluse trained in the ways of the sages:
One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7

Welcome friend :smile:
