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:

Greetings Calahand,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha2:

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)


Exalted in mind, just open and clearly aware, the recluse trained in the ways of the sages:
One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7
