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
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Greetings Luke,

Welcome to this side of the fence.

:hello:

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)

Hello Luke, nice to meet you
: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
