So, I'm new here....

Postby rosuto » Tue Jun 23, 2009 2:38 am

MY name is Gary. I have studied the various Chinese and Japanese "flavors" of Buddhism, and am now looking to learn more of the Therevadin bent, to see which way my feet should fall.
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt.

Greetings Gary,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

Welcome Garry
I hope you like it here!

“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.

Hi Gary,

Welcome to DhammaWheel. I hope this forum helps you find out what it is you're looking for.

With Metta,

Four types of letting go:

1) Giving; expecting nothing back in return
2) Throwing things away
3) Contentment; wanting to be here, not wanting to be anywhere else
4) "Teflon Mind"; having a mind which doesn't accumulate things

- Ajahn Brahm
