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:

Hi
hope you find here useful
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.
"Others will misconstrue reality based on personal perspectives, firmly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our personal perspectives, nor firmly holding them, but easily discarded."
