Hi Bante,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel. :smile:

Mind is Empty
Emptiness is Clear Light
Clear Light is Union

Welcome to dhamma Wheel! :anjali:

maybe you have some thoughts on the training which you could share here viewtopic.php?f=13&t=2216&start=40 if you would be so kind, it isn't a specifically training orientated thread but certainly wouldn't be outside of the intention of the thread.

but on a side note I need to learn another language all these perfect non-native english speakers and writers are giving me an inferiority complex (or should I focus on my English ability first??? :juggling: :tongue: )

hope to speak to you on occassion


Thanks for the welcome. My english is not the same as a native, but i can manage. i'd say my dutch has gotten worse, these days, since i don't use it much... The thread you're linking to looks quite interesting. So you are at Amavarati now?

Hi Bhante,
It is my experiance (or others as the case is) that our grasp of our native language is loosened the longer we don't use it, I know a German fella whos english is as perfect as anyones, and obviously can still speak German, but he noticed that when he had to write something in German he had to send it to a friend of his to correct it, as it was next to illegible, and most of the people I know who are foreners to Briton, have either perfect or it is so good you wouldn't really notice every mistake when they speak, I honestly think it is true what the saying says 'the world speaks English because the engish cant speak to the world' and the old holiday habit of if at first they don't understand say it lounder untill they do is quite apt.
Unfortunately not yet, I will be at Amaravati on the 24th of October for a max of 3 weeks, but definately one week at least, but living it has been interesting so I am glad the thread is also :smile:
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Thank you for all your welcomes. I am happy to be part of this discussion group, which I notice has a very conducive atmosphere for the study of the Dhamma!
