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?

"For a disciple who has conviction in the Teacher's message & lives to penetrate it, what accords with the Dhamma is this:
'The Blessed One is the Teacher, I am a disciple. He is the one who knows, not I." - MN. 70 Kitagiri Sutta

Greetings Jason,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.


Retro. :)
What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)

Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'.
(Snp 3.6)

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,
