Hello everyone.

Obviously I am new here so I thought that I'd introduce myself. My name is Carl, I'm 28 and have been reading about Buddhism for about 2 years now. I've also been practicing meditation daily for about the same amount of time. I'm new to Buddhism and am eager to learn all about it.

Hope to talk to you soon!

Welcome Carl!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

Welcome Carl!

It’s only meditation when there are two minds:
Knowing-noting mind and observing mind.
If there is only one mind, ‘I’ is always there.
The object is not the dhamma,
The dhamma is the mind
That is being aware.

Thanks for the very warm welcome.

I'm not really up on forums so I'll probably be a bit slow on the uptake. :D

Welcome Big Carl.
