Hi from uh... I'm not sure

Postby alex jansen » Sat Oct 17, 2009 3:19 am

Was in search of a peaceful noob-friendly Buddhist forum when I came across this forum.

I've been attracted to the Theravadan school for years. Yet to take the 3 refuges but hoping to by year end.

I'm sort of in-between countries now, sometimes in Singapore, sometimes in Hong Kong, sometimes Malaysia, and probably will be in the UK by Christmas.

Hope to learn something here. See you guys in the forum.

Welcome friend
Hope you enjoy your time here.

Welcome alex, I hope you like it here!

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Greetings Alex,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.


Retro. :)
“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)

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)
