Howdy from ZFI

Postby Jok_Hae » Tue Mar 10, 2009 10:18 pm

Howdy all! :hello: I am a zennie so I'll be mostly lurking here, but I do have an interest in the Pali canon. I am currently reading the Digha Nikaya. I thought I would also show a bit of solidarity, as most us are refugees from "you know where". Plus, your smilies are better over here! :twothumbsup:

Good luck and thanks for practicing,
Keith

Greetings Keith,

Welcome and thanks for dropping by.

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)

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Thanks folks! Ben - I usually don't understand what the heck they're saying in Zen land, never mind a tradition I am not all that familiar with! :lol:

Welcome Keith, and don't be shy -- I trust that you'll find this forum as welcoming as I find ZFI with my questions about Zen.

"The serene and peaceful mind is the true epitome of human achievement."-- Ajahn Chah, Living Dhamma

"To reach beyond fear and danger we must sharpen and widen our vision. We have to pierce through the deceptions that lull us into a comfortable complacency, to take a straight look down into the depths of our existence, without turning away uneasily or running after distractions." -- Bhikkhu Bodhi

Hi
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!
