Hello folks!

Postby thecannonball » Fri Mar 23, 2012 5:02 pm

Hi everybody,

New to the forums and new to the practice of Buddhism in general. I have been semi-interested in Buddhism for quite some time but I'm only really diving in now at almost 30 years of age. I perused a few different forums before joining here but this seemed like the place to be! I'm sure I'm going to have plenty of questions and look forward to some interesting discussions. Hope you're all doing well.

Greetings Cannonball,

Welcome to the forum!

:hello:

:buddha1:

Metta,
Retro. :)
"Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'."
(Snp 3.6)

"Whether I were to preach in brief, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach in detail, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach both in brief or in detail, Sāriputta, rare are those who understand." (A I 333, Sāriputtasutta)

Welcome Cannonball!

:anjali:
“What should be done for his disciples out of compassion by a teacher who seeks their welfare and has compassion for them, that I have done for you, bhikkhus. There are these roots of trees, these empty huts. Meditate, bhikkhus, do not delay or else you will regret it later. This is our instruction to you.” - MN 19

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