I have noticed that although I joined some time ago, I haven't introduced myself yet...

So...

Moin, my name is Christian.

I discovered Dhammawheel by searching via google where some "Grey Forum Users" have gone.
I love to be here. There are so many wise, sage users around here from whom I can learn a lot.

Althoug I'm able to understand almost everything you are writing, my English skills aren't well enough to take part in the discussions. So I will stay silent and just read :coffee:

Moin, moin!

:hello:
Rain soddens what is kept wrapped up,
But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.

Moin Christian... and welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:hello:

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)

Hi, Christian!

Ed
Sīlaṃ balaṃ appaṭimaṃ.
Sīlaṃ āvudhamuttamaṃ.
Sīlamābharaṇaṃ seṭṭhaṃ.
Sīlaṃ kavacamabbhutaṃ.


Virtue is a matchless power.
Virtue is the greatest weapon.
Virtue is the best adornment.
Virtue is a wonderful armor.

Theragatha 614


Sabbapāpassa akaraṇaṃ,
kusalassa upasampadā,
Sacittapariyodapanaṃ,
etaṃ buddhāna sāsanaṃ.


Refraining from all wrong-doing,
Undertaking the good,
Purifying the mind,
This is the teaching of the buddhas.

Hi Christian,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel. :smile:

Best wishes,
