Hello from South Carolina

Postby copestattic » Sat Jun 26, 2010 6:42 pm

I struggle with short temper, stress and worry. It's hard for me to separate reaction from reality and to not worry about various problems whether I can do anything about them or not. It's a continuous conscious effort but Buddhism has helped immensely and I think talking with more experienced people will help even more. After being on the site for only a few minutes I already found answers to some of my questions!

Welcome copestattic!

:anjali:
“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

Greetings copestattic,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha2:

Metta,
Retro. :)
"Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'."
(Snp 3.6)

"Whether I were to preach in brief, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach in detail, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach both in brief or in detail, Sāriputta, rare are those who understand." (A I 333, Sāriputtasutta)
