I am a 'newcomer', tentatively exploring Buddhism. It is good to have found this forum and to be with you.

you have had the good chance to fall amongst the friendliest, most helpful and willing bunch of people you could ever want.
I count myself priviledged to be here, and I hope you reap much benefit from your stay here.

I am sooooo happy - How on earth could I be otherwise?! :D

Greetings pererin,

Lovely to have you here. If there's anything you can think of (especially in your capacity as a 'newcomer') which you think would improve your experience here, please drop a note in the Suggestion Box!

Hi and welcome hope to see you around!
“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.”
