Greetings from Bangkok

Postby Dennie » Wed Aug 01, 2012 3:12 pm

Hello:
Just found this forum and I am looking forward to being a contributing member.
I am on holiday in Bangkok (have been here for almost 3 weeks). I flew here from Baghdad, Iraq where I work but Texas is home.
I have been interested in Buddhism for many years but my holiday here and meeting some phenomenal people has deepened my desire to know more about and practice the belief.
Today I went to a meditation class and received so much peace and knowledge and it has only whetted my desire to learn more.
Thank you for allowing me to share your place and hope to learn more from the knowledgeable individuals that call this home.
Peace and Love :anjali:

Welcome Dennie!

Welcome Dennie!

“What should be done for his disciples out of compassion by a teacher who seeks their welfare and has compassion for them, that I have done for you, bhikkhus. There are these roots of trees, these empty huts. Meditate, bhikkhus, do not delay or else you will regret it later. This is our instruction to you.” - MN 19

Greetings Dennie,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha1:

Metta,
Retro. :)
"Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'."
(Snp 3.6)

"Whether I were to preach in brief, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach in detail, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach both in brief or in detail, Sāriputta, rare are those who understand." (A I 333, Sāriputtasutta)
