Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.
First, be kind with me. I am French and my english is catastrophic. So, if you don't understand sometimes what I mean it's not only because I am stupid, remember it !
I don't study the teachings of Theravada. I am a Niyinmapa but your forum is very interesting.
I live in Middle East, in UAE. So if you know some buddhists there, tell me please.
Everything is naturally perfect just as it is

Greetings Black Hole,
Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.
Feel free also to check out the Mahayana/Vajrayana Dharma Wheel site (see the link in my signature)
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)'We should not congratulate someone on the success of their misdeeds, but on the contrary should endeavour to advise him or her to lead a more skilful and wholesome life. If such advice is ignored then we can only give up and let go' - Phra PanyapatipoDharma Wheel (Mahayana / Vajrayana forum)

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
I heard the UAE had quite a few Buddhists due to the Sri Lankan work force on most of the high-rise buildings that went up during the economic boom. Not sure how many are still there though.

What is the use of his knowledge
pertaining to the number of insects in the whole world?
Rather, inquire into his knowledge of
that which is to be practised by us
This being is bound to samsara, kamma is his means for going beyond.

Hi Black hole,
you may want to include a location as a reminder for everyone in your user control panel, although that isn't a guarantee everyone knows what others are talking about fully all the time.
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!
