Hello

Postby Glenn » Mon Mar 09, 2009 9:08 pm

As a long time lurker at ES and here, I've decided to finally sign up for Dhamma Wheel. Here in Minnesota, we're a bit spoiled for choices as to how we want to practice Buddhism. Minneapolis has the second largest Tibetan population in the US with a center in each tradition. It also has Soto Zen centers run by Dharma heirs of Dainin Katagiri (including Steve Hagen).

But I have decided that I wanted to practice in the Therevadin tradition because it speaks to most to me. I am grateful to have such a wonderful and helpful resource available to me.

Hi Welcome

A big warm welcome from Tasmania!
Welcome to Dhamma Wheel! In a place where you have such a surplus of choice, it is heartening to know that you think very highly of our small community here at Dhamma Wheel!
I am looking forward to your contributions.

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

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

Greetings Glenn,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

:hello:

Metta,
Retro. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Never again...
