Noah Regrets by Noah Regrets

Postby Noah Regrets » Wed Sep 26, 2012 3:19 pm

Hey guys. I'm 21 years old in North Carolina, USA. I've been interested in Buddhism for a long time, dabbling in the philosophical aspects from time to time. I use my small amount of knowledge to help me in my day to day life, and thought I ought to seek followers and gain more insight into the philosophy.

I enjoy the readings of Sulak Sivaraska, and find his ideas on "modern buddhism" absolutely fascinating, and agree that the Buddhist awareness of self, and its connection to greater humanity, is tantamount to the achievement of a stronger, more just society.

I don't know if you guys have any kind of mentor system, but if someone were interested in communicating their experiences with me and helping me come to a better understanding, I would love to email/ facebook/ PM, whatever you like.

If you like Sulak, you would love Buddhadasa Bhikkhu as well. Try reading

I don't think there is a codified mentor system, but feel free to PM me or any other members and I'm sure I/they can at least point you to someone who might know something. \

Welcome aboard!
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

Welcome Noah!

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.

Greetings Noah and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
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.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
