A forum for beginners and members of other Buddhist traditions to ask questions about Theravāda (The Way of the Elders). Responses require moderator approval before they are visible.
Pretty good advice for anyone, in any situation...keeping it simple, in many ways, prevents one from going (too far) astray...if I were asked...

Include meditation in your daily routines and you will be just fine IMHO.

Thank you appicchato, bodom and Dr. Snyder on your kind comments. Your past sage advice and comments on/teaching of the Dharma are meritorious. I am grateful for this discussion forum...it has added greatly to my personal practice. BTW, kudos Dr. Snyder on your, "The complete Book of buddha's Lists - Explained". Now that it is in PDF format as well, it was a nice download addition to my Kindle.
