Greetings all

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

Greetings Laurens,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha2:

Metta,
Retro. :)
“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”

Howdy Laurens.
