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!

To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.
