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:

Mind is Empty
Emptiness is Clear Light
Clear Light is Union
Union is Great Bliss

Hi Onmitt

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

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

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Welcome friend

Greetings Onmitt,

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

You may also find like-minded people at http://dhamma.ru/forum/ , if you have not been there already.

Metta, Dmytro
