Most Helpful Dhamma Wheel Discussions?

Postby christopher::: » Fri Mar 12, 2010 1:54 am

With so many discussion going on here at Dhamma Wheel it's easy to lose track of helpful information and conversations. These are some of the discussions that I find myself returning to from time to time. I had posted some of these links elsewhere a few days ago.

What discussions have you found to be most helpful?

* Buddhism for the 21st Century Parent * Everyday challenges that you struggle with? * Insight into Emotions * Intro to 'Wings...' (Thanissaro's 'Wings To Awakening') * Consistency in Practice * Breath Focusing and Staying Present * The secret to a successful meditation session * Brahma-viharas, some easier/harder for you? *

"As Buddhists, we should aim to develop relationships that are not predominated by grasping and clinging. Our relationships should be characterised by the brahmaviharas of metta (loving kindness), mudita (sympathetic joy), karuna (compassion), and upekkha (equanimity)."

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.
