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

Hi Dr. Who,

I think I remember you from E-Sangha... you're a Nichiren Buddhist?

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

Metta,
Retro. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Actually I was a Nichiren buddhist.
I recently spent years into guru yoga under a Tibetan Rinpoche.

I don't know what i am anymore.
I am going to explore Theravadian here.

Warm vibes in here by the way.
I'm sensitive to good things and this place has it.

Hi Dr Who
I hope you find some support and interesting conversations here with us.

“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.”

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

I know that goo is impermanent and empty. Does that count?
