Hello!

Postby darryldevault » Fri Apr 10, 2009 12:55 am

I'm new here, the name's darryl.

I'm interested in buddhism in general, and would like to explore it more.

Is this entire forum specifically about theravada buddhism?

Hi Darryl
Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
Dhamma Wheel is for anyone who is interested in the Theravada. Our focus is predominantly Theravada.
If you are interested in the various schools of the Mahayana, I recommend our new sister-site: www.dharmawheel.net
If your interest is specifically Zen, then I recommend www.zenforuminternational.com
I hope to 'see' you around here!

Ben

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

Metta,

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

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

Lost to a world in which I crave no part,
I sit alone and listen to my heart,
Pleased with my little corner of the earth,
Glad that I came--not sorry to depart
