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:

Buenas tardes, Pablo, y bienvenido!!

No, I think that's just about my limit, except for a few basic school-learnt words!!

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)

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)

One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7

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