Just looking - Ayu

Postby Ayu » Sun Oct 28, 2012 5:31 pm

Hello friends,

I call myself Ayu, pali-word for "life", cause I like the sound.
You may excuse my strange English sometimes - I'm German native speaker.
Practicing Tibetean Buddhism since 2008, I'd like to read more about Theravada. That's why I will keep silent rather than join the discussions, I think.

Best wishes for all of you,

Welcome friend! I hope your stay here is constructive.
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

Stuff I write about things.

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

Greetings Ayu,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.


Retro. :)
“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”
