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.
“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."

Welcome!

“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
