What a great site!

Postby bodom » Thu Jan 15, 2009 9:24 pm

Im really excited to see a forum that is devoted entirely to the Buddhas "original" teachings. Its great to be here!

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

bodom_bad_boy,
see you about hopefully
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

It's good to see many familiar faces, is that the right word in cyberpsace?, here. I look forward to having Dhamma discussions and learning more from so many learned participants.
