Hi guys!

Postby Javi » Thu Nov 22, 2012 5:49 pm

Greetings from Miami! Joined the board because all my google searches kept leading back this website and found myself reading many highly informative threads. Currently reading In the Buddha's words by Bodhi and loving it, also listening to his course on the MN. Looking forward to many future dhamma discussions!

Welcome Javi!

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

Welcome Javi! In the Buddha's words by Bhikkhu Bodhi is my current book, too! It's one of the books that is recommend here regulary, so you're in good company! As for the courses on the MN - I heard it's good to listen to those while studying the translation of the MN (which will probably be my next big book :D)

Best wishes,
Alobha
