hello from venice, ca

Postby bryandavis » Sun Oct 07, 2012 7:50 am

Hello all. My name is Bryan Davis and I am a dharma student who live in venice, ca. I have been involved in Dharma not that long, since about 1999. But it has really impacted my life in a profound way.

Just wanted to say hello to those that post here. I practice mainly in the tibetan lineages but look forward to discussing vipassana and sitting cultivation here. i read as a guest a lot but thought i might as well join:)

if you want to check out my latest journey im trying to partake there is a link below.

Hello Bryan,

Welcome to DhammaWheel! :group:

If you are hoping to get to teachings by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche and the Dalai Lama, you might be better posting over on our sister site DharmaWheel – as this forum is a Theravada forum. Here is the link to the Mahayana and Vajrayana board:

Greetings Bryan and welcome!
“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

Welcome Bryan!

:anjali:
This is our foundation: to have sati, recollection, and sampajañña, self-awareness, whether standing, walking, sitting, or reclining. Whatever arises, just leave it be, don't cling to it. Be it like or dislike, happiness or suffering, doubt or certainty... Don't try to label everything, just know it. See that all the things that arise in the mind are simply sensations. They are transient. They arise, exist and cease. That's all there is to them, they have no self or being, they are neither ''us'' nor ''them.'' They are not worthy of clinging to, any of them. - Ajahn Chah

Welcome to DW Bryan!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.
