Hello hello ...

Postby RMSmith » Wed Feb 17, 2010 11:39 pm

After a long 3 year absence from anything buddhist (bad life struggles causing me to give up on almost everything decent), I have started to step carefully and slowly onto the path again. I've noticed that some resources have disappeared, while others have sprouted. Happy to have found this place!

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

Hi RM Smith
Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Hi & Wilcome to Dhamma Wheel!
“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."
