Hello

Postby jayarava » Sat Jul 11, 2009 8:21 pm

I'm Jayarava from the Western Buddhist Order. I have a long term interest in the Pāli canon and know a little Pāli. I write a blog which frequently features a verse or two from a sutta upon which I comment. So not a Theravādin but with sympathy for that path, and a love of the scriptures.

Hello and welcome to DW :)
Lost to a world in which I crave no part,
I sit alone and listen to my heart,
Pleased with my little corner of the earth,
Glad that I came--not sorry to depart

Hello and welcome Jayarava! Could you kindly post a link to your blog? :)
-Samāhitam cittam yathābhutam pajānāti.

समाहितं चित्तं यथाभूतं पजानाती |

A concentrated mind sees things as they really are.

-Ujuko nāma so maggo, abhayā nāma sā disā.

उजुको नाम सो माग्गो, अभया नाम सा दिसा |

'Straight' is this path, fearlessness is its way.

:hello:

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

The Pali Canon is great! I don't know where I'd be without it.

Greetings Jayarava,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha1:

Metta,
Retro. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Never again...
