Hi from Mudra

Postby mudra » Tue Mar 03, 2009 10:58 am

:anjali: Dharma Greetings All!

I found out about this from a fellow member of another Buddhist forum where I use the same name.

Though not Theravadin, I certainly have plenty of respect for the tradition and learning from it does nothing to detract from or contradict my practicing and studying my own Gelug tradition - quite the contrary. I am here to learn. :reading:

Welcome Mudra

You are welcome here!
Kind regards

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

Greetings and welcome, Mudra.

Nice to see you here.

Metta,

“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”
