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
“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.

hi :hello:
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”
