Hello!

Postby Shanti » Thu May 24, 2012 5:22 am

Hi there. It's great to be here and to meet all of you. I grew up in a very Catholic home for a while with my adopted parents. I studied Buddhism after my nana gave me a book written by His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama. I began to meditate and read a lot of Buddhist texts. My mom is a Buddhist and she's taught me a lot about the dharma. After a lot of study on many world religions, I've found that Buddhism is the best spiritual path for me. It simplifies my life and brings me a lot of peace.

I look forward to getting to know you all.

Greetings Shanti,

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)

One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7
