Hello from Canada

Postby Randolph1809 » Wed Feb 17, 2010 5:13 pm

Hi everyone,

My name is Randy. I've been casually reading about Tibetan Buddhism for a few years, now it seems I am more drawn towards Theravada.

I'm grateful to have found this site, I hope to use it to increase my practice and to contribute to the Sangha.

Nice to meet you everyone!

hi randy,
There is also Dharma Wheel our sister site if you are still interested in Mahayana and Tibetan Buddhism? Link bottom of the page in the middle.
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Greetings,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

Metta,
Retro. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Never again...

Welcome!

:anjali:
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah
