Hi from Sweden!

Postby Brandon » Fri Dec 14, 2012 5:59 am


My name is Brandon and I come from Sweden. I'm fairly new to Buddhism, I have read some books and meditated a little bit on and off. I joined this forum because I want to learn more about Theravada Buddhism and find peace in my mind.

I hope I found the right place, I know it is the right Buddhist tradition I have chosen anyway.

Sincerely, Brandon

This being is bound to samsara, kamma is his means for going beyond.

Hi Brandon and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
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.
