Hi Everyone,

I've been a lurker. I post often at the DharmaWheel board, and I lead a Tendai Buddhist group in Washington, DC. I'm interested in... Buddhism, generally. I look forward to participating here.

all the best,
Jikan

Yup Jikan ... where the grass is browner over this side of the fence :mrgreen: :hello:
Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

Welcome Jikan!

:anjali:
“What should be done for his disciples out of compassion by a teacher who seeks their welfare and has compassion for them, that I have done for you, bhikkhus. There are these roots of trees, these empty huts. Meditate, bhikkhus, do not delay or else you will regret it later. This is our instruction to you.” - MN 19
