Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.
Hi everyone! I just joined this forum and thought I'd introduce myself briefly. I'm a 23 year old Theravadin Buddhist from Lancashire, England. I hope to be able to discuss the Buddha-Dhamma with like minded individuals.

This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

"Others will misconstrue reality due to their personal perspectives, doggedly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our own personal perspectives, nor doggedly holding onto them, but will discard them easily. This effacement shall be done."

Greetings and welcome to Dhamma Wheel.
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)'We should not congratulate someone on the success of their misdeeds, but on the contrary should endeavour to advise him or her to lead a more skilful and wholesome life. If such advice is ignored then we can only give up and let go' - Phra PanyapatipoDharma Wheel (Mahayana / Vajrayana forum)

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

“Who lives without reverence lives miserably.”

It were endless to dispute upon everything that is disputable.
