Hello there!

Postby Senex » Sun Oct 04, 2009 6:18 am

My name is Michael (18), from Canada, and am very interested in Buddhism! At the moment im not committed to anything since I am still young and not very knowledgeable(I do however believe i have a good grasp of the basics of all of the world's major religions), however I am very curious and eager to learn and discuss anything!

Also have a profile on Dharmawheel by the same name, so you might see a post by me there once in a while.
Words exist because of meaning; once you've gotten the meaning, you can forget the words. Where can I find a man who has forgotten words so I can have a word with him?

Hi there Michael, welcome aboard.

Greetings Michael,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

:buddha2:

Metta,
Retro. :)
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)

Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'.
(Snp 3.6)

Salām.
Rain soddens what is kept wrapped up,
But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.

Hey, that's cool, I had no idea there was a Dharmawheel, too. Thanks for the pointer.
