Hello (again)

Postby jcprice » Wed Dec 09, 2009 2:09 pm

Greetings all,

I stumbled across this little forum the other day after searching for an update on e-sangha. I used to read a lot and post a bit.

I've just been reading through a couple of the posts, catching up on things, and I have to say that I've missed you all, old and new dhamma friends.

Much metta and thanks,

Hello Jason, nice to meet you.

Do you go to hear Ajahn Brahm's public talks?

"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

Greetings Jason,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.


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)

Hi Jack,

I used to attend regularly but I stopped due to the birth of a new child and associated obligations.

I still listen to the talks regularly though and intend to return when life settles down a bit.

With metta,
