G'day!

Postby Dan74 » Wed Mar 11, 2009 12:33 pm

:hello:

I've been posting a bit and some would know me from our mother-forum, but for the others, I am Dan(iel) from Melbourne, Australia. I practice in the Korean Zen (Son) Buddhist tradition but my teacher likes referring to the Pali scriptures and making sure people know the fundamentals whatever tradition they come from.

I have respect for practitioners of all Buddhist traditions, especially the sincere and dedicated ones :bow: !

May we all attain liberation!

Hi Dan,

Welcome, and thanks for the introduction. :smile:

Best wishes,
Dhammanando Bhikkhu
    Yathā bubbuḷakaṃ passe, yathā passe marīcikaṃ,
    Evaṃ lokaṃ avekkhantaṃ, maccurājā na passati.

    One should see it as a bubble;
    One should see it as a mirage.
    Who regards the world thus
    The King of Death sees him not.
    (Dhammapada 170)


    ผู้ที่มองเห็นโลก ว่าไม่จีรังและหาสาระอะไรมิได้
    เช่นเดียวกับคนมองฟองน้ำและพยับแดด
    คนเช่นนี้พญามารย่อมตามหาไม่พบ ฯ
    (ธรรมบท ๑๗๐)

nice to meet you!

(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.”

Greetings Dan,

Nice to see you here.

:hello:

Metta,
