Introducing myself

Postby sati » Wed Jan 16, 2013 9:43 pm

Hello,

I am happy to be here. Thanks for offering such a useful and inspiring online place.

I have been introduced to Theravada through S.N. Goenka and B.Gunaratana 's books, and I am still a beginner.

with Metta, :smile:

Welcome Aboard Sati!
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”

"Others will misconstrue reality based on personal perspectives, firmly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our personal perspectives, nor firmly holding them, but easily discarded."

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