Hello All

Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.

Hello All

Postby seaturtle » Thu Apr 11, 2013 4:06 am

Just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself. I've been studying and practicing Buddhism for nearly four years now, mainly through listening to talks found on Dharmaseed. Most recently I have been reading Dhamma Everywhere by Sayadaw U Tejaniya. I hope to be active in this forum, but I have two sons (one is 3 years old the other just celebrated his first birthday) so it is hard for me to find time to get on the computer.

To be born human and encounter the great joy
of the good Dharma is a chance rarer than
a turtle thrusting its neck through a yoke
floating freely in the great ocean.

Welcome Seaturtle.

Hope your time here at DW is fruitful :)

Greetings and welcome.

Those are great ages for a kid. But just wait a couple of years - is it ever neat when their thinking becomes more adult like, yet more open to possibilities than that of an adult. Like they're clean little mirrors on the world, while we're dirty ones.

Ah, good times.

Welcome seaturtle! I, too, have two young ones so I'm with you on the time crunch! Hope to see you post here when you have time.
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.
