Hello

Hello dear Theravadins,

This is Luke from Dharmawheel. I practice the Kagyu teachings of Tibetan Buddhism, but I created an account here so I could talk about the Pali Canon and other related topics when I feel the urge.

I think that Thai Buddhist temples are very beautiful.

May all beings attain enlightenment.

Hi
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
John Stuart Mill

Hi Luke
Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

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

Hello Luke, nice to meet you
