Blessings of Peace

Postby wrbergman » Wed Oct 28, 2009 3:38 am

Hi Everyone,

My name is Wayne Bergman and I am a Father and Husband. I started my journey out following the Tibetan path. I am new to study and practice and over the last few weeks I have been drawn to seek Dhamma thru Theravada. I live on the upper west coast of the United States. I am looking forward to interacting with you all here.

Take care,

Greetings Wayne,

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)

"If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 50 years ago, a liberal 25 years ago and a racist today." (Thomas Sowell)

Hi Wayne,

I hope that you find this site as useful as I have.

With Metta,

Four types of letting go:

1) Giving; expecting nothing back in return
2) Throwing things away
3) Contentment; wanting to be here, not wanting to be anywhere else
4) "Teflon Mind"; having a mind which doesn't accumulate things

- Ajahn Brahm

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.

Hi there
Welcome to Dhamma Wheel :)

"For a disciple who has conviction in the Teacher's message & lives to penetrate it, what accords with the Dhamma is this:
'The Blessed One is the Teacher, I am a disciple. He is the one who knows, not I." - MN. 70 Kitagiri Sutta
