Anjali

Postby Magoo » Tue May 01, 2012 11:37 pm

Hello all,

I discovered or should I say, let go of my ignorance, opened my mind and looked into Buddhism about 6 months ago and I am so happy for this. Only last week I formalised my following of the path by taking the five precpets at my local monastery. I began a drastic life transformation last year, which is continuing but in a calmer and settled way now...thanks to Buddhism, as I now know the reasons for my dissatisfaction. Anjali to the Buddha. :anjali:

Welcome Eamonn!

: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

Hi Eamonn and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Welcome Aboard!
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”

"Others will misconstrue reality based on personal perspectives, firmly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our personal perspectives, nor firmly holding them, but easily discarded."
