Hello :)

I'm Laurens, several of you may remember by from e-sangha, although I didn't post there an awful lot. As someone increasingly drawn to Theravadin practice I hope that this site would be of great benefit to me.

All the best

Laurens

Hi & Welcome to DW :anjali:

Hope you enjoy it here even if you don't post to often
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Greetings Laurens,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha2:

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

Howdy Laurens.
