Hi all !
Been practicing Theravada since 2001.
I'm glad I found this place... with like minded people to talk to, because where I live Theravada is nonexistent :alien:

Welcome, onmitt. :smile:

Emptiness is Clear Light

Hi Onmitt

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
For most of us, Theravada is non-existent where we live!
I look forward to read your contributons!

Welcome friend

:anjali:
"And so, because this Teaching is so different from what Westerners are accustomed to, they will try to adapt the Teaching to their own framework. What they need to learn to do is not to adapt the Teaching to their own point of view but to adapt their own point of view to the Teaching. This is called saddhá, or faith, and it means giving oneself to the Teaching even if the Teaching is contrary to one’s own preconceived notions of the way things are."- Ven Bodhesako

Greetings Onmitt,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

Metta,

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
