Hi

I'm new in the forum. I'm from Portugal and I'm curious about Buddhism. I want to learn more about it.

Peace.

Welcome! Is there much of a Portuguese Buddhist community?
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
- Lokavipatti Sutta

Greetings Logical,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

Metta,

Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)
