Hi from China

Postby Gaoxing » Sun Aug 26, 2012 3:23 pm

My name is suppose to be Gaoxing but I made a mistake when I logged in, it's now Gaoxiang. I can't seem to correct the mistake. :oops:

Anyway, I suppose its not the end of the world. :rules:

Hope to have a good read here if you'll welcome me. :hello:

Welcome! A mod might be able to help you change your name.

Either way, I hope you find a nice community here.
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
- Lokavipatti Sutta

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.

Thanks for all the warm and friendly welcomes.

In Chinese Gaoxing means happy but Gaoxiang almost means 'much craving'. I prefer happy as it is also the name I was given by my Chinese students. I try to teach them English. I'm a South African on contract in China.

Thanks to all of those who offered to fix the name.

I'm certainly impressed by the amount of information available here. :twothumbsup:

Hi Gaoxing and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
I look forward to your contributions.
kind regards,

“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.
