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

Hi!
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.

Greetings,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

Metta,

“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)

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)
