Hello everyone!

Postby Snufkin » Sat May 12, 2012 12:19 pm

Just thought I'd say Hello and introduce myself on here.

I have been interested in buddhism for quite a long time, both my parents although they aren't practising are very influenced by buddhist teachings. I never really had any interested until my life kind of hit a slump and my interest started off with reading a few books about zen and I even tried Zazen unsuccessfully for a few days. My interest kind of dissipated and my life continued as before.

Now, a good few months later I stumbled across some videos by Yuttadhammo, which piqued my interest again, and have been meditating daily for almost two weeks now. This forum looks great, so I decided to join. I plan to stick around this time.

Apologies for the life story.

Welcome Snufkin!

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

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.”
