Hello

Postby Danny » Wed Feb 18, 2009 8:18 am

First of all: Great forum!
My name is Danny I'm from the Netherlands. I have been interested in buddhism for a long time now, but only started practicing it seriously about six or seven months ago, I don't have guidens as in a teacher, or a Sangha, but will go for a retreat very soon. I'm still looking for the right retreat to develop my Satipatthana practice.
As for my background; I've been both christian and atheist, I really have put a lot of effort and thinking in what could be the path for me, and buddhism seems to be it. Everything I vaguely knew, the Buddha seems to have clarified, and is in the Pali-canon.

Thank you for reading and see you in one of the threads!

Metta,

Danny

“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.”

"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."

Greetings and welcome.

:hello:

Metta,

"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)
