Hello fellow Dharmafarers

Postby Calahand » Thu Dec 10, 2009 4:19 pm

Hello!
I am new to buddhism, and I really liked theravada, I used to go to this site called "e-sangha" to learn about theravada buddhism, but i guess thats down or something. Its so nice to find a site again to learn more about theravada buddhism and its practice. So in order to stay connected and learn more, here I am. :thumbsup:

"To reach beyond fear and danger we must sharpen and widen our vision. We have to pierce through the deceptions that lull us into a comfortable complacency, to take a straight look down into the depths of our existence, without turning away uneasily or running after distractions." -- Bhikkhu Bodhi

Hi
hope you find here useful
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Greetings Calahand,

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)”
