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

Ben
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.

Hi Mudra,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel. :smile:

Best wishes,

Greetings and welcome, Mudra.

Nice to see you here.

Metta,
Retro. :)
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)
