Hi :)

Postby thecharmedbaja » Fri Feb 05, 2010 11:51 am

:namaste: everybody,

I'm new to both this forum and Theravada Buddhism! I seeked refuge on the Duruthu Poya day last week, after serious thought and searching into all the world religions, and finally came to the conclusion that Buddhism was the only one that made sense to me :D Forgive me if I ask lots of questions on this forum :embarassed: !

My name is Jasmine, I'm 17 and am from London, but I currently live with my girlfriend in Wales to do my A levels :)

How about all of you? How long have you been Buddhists, etc? :)

Hi & welcome to Dhammawheel
:anjali:
“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."

Hi Jasmine. :hello:

:anjali:
“What should be done for his disciples out of compassion by a teacher who seeks their welfare and has compassion for them, that I have done for you, bhikkhus. There are these roots of trees, these empty huts. Meditate, bhikkhus, do not delay or else you will regret it later. This is our instruction to you.” - MN 19
