Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.

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!

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)

One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7

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.
