Greetings from Mars

Postby kereD » Sat Aug 11, 2012 7:00 pm

... or at least it feels like it, sometimes.
Las Vegas is a tough place to better yourself, and a seemingly perfect place to practice Buddhist philosophy.
Nice to meet you all ... :hello:

Welcome kereD!

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

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo

With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5

Hi kered and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Greetings kereD

well we might not be on the same planet, but we are on the same page, I think - literally and metaphorically

welcome to Dhamma Wheel :anjali:

Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."
