Hey all! I've been reading the book "How to see yourself as you really are" by his holiness the Dalai Lama and other books on Buddhism. I am new but very interested in the buddhist philosophy and would be very grateful if you all would assist me in my journey. :buddha1:

the lake's surface does not try
to hold on to the image of the bird."

Welcome! You may be interested in checking out the "Discovering Theravada" forum and all the introductory resources there.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama is not a Theravada teacher, but many here respect him. If you are interested in Tibetan Buddhism, try checking out the sister site www.dharmawheel.org.

Have a nice stay!
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.

My mistake. Thank you for your response I will look into both aspects of Buddhism with care. :smile:

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel, nrose!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Greetings nrose619,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

Enjoy the forum(s).

Metta,

If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)
