i am a zen buddhist with an appreciation of Theravadan. i have been listening to quite a few Dharmaseed talks recently and enjoy them. i probably won't post much here. i haven't been posting much anywhere, but i do read a post or two now and again and may ask a question occasionally.
kind regards,
sattva

Greetings Sattva,

Nice to see you here - welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

Metta,

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)

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

Nice to see you, sattva, hope you're well.
"The serene and peaceful mind is the true epitome of human achievement."-- Ajahn Chah, Living Dhamma

"To reach beyond fear and danger we must sharpen and widen our vision. We have to pierce through the deceptions that lull us into a comfortable complacency, to take a straight look down into the depths of our existence, without turning away uneasily or running after distractions." -- Bhikkhu Bodhi

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

sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.
