My name is Sindre and I am a 29 year old man living in Norway. Last summer I was lucky enough to read "What the Buddha Tought" by Rahula (in Norwegian), and it was a life changing experience for me. This summer, in july, I am going for the Samanera ordaination and I hope to become a bhikkhu later on. English language is not my strong side, but I will do my best to improve. When it comes to Dhamma I like to read and talk about it (and practice), but I realize I still have a long way to go, so I hope this forum can help me understand even better what buddhism and life is all about.
"When, Bahiya, for you in the seen is merely what is seen... in the cognized is merely what is cognized, then, Bahiya, you will not be 'with that.' When, Bahiya, you are not 'with that,' then, Bahiya, you will not be 'in that.' When, Bahiya, you are not 'in that,' then, Bahiya, you will be neither here nor beyond nor in between the two. Just this is the end of suffering."
