I am just popping in to say hi :jumping: I heard this site was a good place to get a good Theravada education. I am currently practicing Nichiren Buddhism but am not sure about staying with that. This site looks pretty good so far . Nice to meet you all :jumping:

Hi Livindesert

Whichever tradition you end up practicing, you are more than welcome here at Dhamma Wheel!
Kind regards

Ben

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Hi :hello:
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Greetings and welcome, livindesert!

Metta,
Retro. :)
“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”
