Hello everyone

Postby MstChf » Wed Jan 04, 2012 2:51 am

I am interested in Buddhism but admit ignorance. I have read a few books and watched a few documentaries/movies about Buddha and Buddhism, but that's about it. I'm looking for some peace in my life (and on the internet).

Welcome!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

Welcome MstChf!

:anjali:
It’s only meditation when there are two minds:
Knowing-noting mind and observing mind.
If there is only one mind, ‘I’ is always there.
The object is not the dhamma,
The dhamma is the mind
That is being aware.

- Shwe Oo Min Sayadaw

You are welcome here.
