Hello from Spain

Postby Pablo » Mon Apr 13, 2009 10:08 pm

Hi everyone!

I am one in the "noble search" from Madrid (Spain). I have practised meditation for two years and a half now, and I have studied mainly Theravada Buddhism, more specifically Ajahn Chah and his disciples, Thanissaro Bhikkhu, and the Sutta Pitaka.

I usually write in this Spanish forum (www.bosquetheravada.org), but I wished to contribute to an English-written forum, so I could practise my English and, of course, learn more about the Dhamma, and meet new dhamma-buddies!

Metta to you all :anjali:

Pablo

Welcome!!

I am sooooo happy - How on earth could I be otherwise?! :D

Greetings and welcome, Pablo!

Lovely to see you here.

Best wishes for your English practice (which already sounds perfectly fine)

Metta,
Retro. :)

Hi

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome! :smile:

To celebrate it, I'm gonna sit for a while. See you afterwards! :tongue:
