I'm new (kinda)

Postby DonkeyDarko » Mon Dec 14, 2009 11:48 am

Hey all.

I used to go by DhammaPunk on the eSangha forums, but I was never amazingly active there so I don't suppose that means much to anyone!

I took refuge over a year ago, but because of illness and a few other things have not been back to my temple or met with the local buddhist community much since then, so expect lots of questions from me for a while cos I'm kind of a newbie :P

hope you enjoy any discussions here!
“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.”

"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."

Welcome, DonkeyDarko :smile:
There are quite a few folk here who used to visit e-sangha, including me. I kept the same identity, a few others haven't.
