Hi everyone

Postby Mindstar » Thu Apr 18, 2013 11:08 am

Hello

I have registered because i enjoy hanging out here.
Basically i'm living in a buddhist desert (no monastery around) and the Internet is my only access.
I really enjoy listening to humerous monks like Ajahn Sumedho and Ajahn Brahm so in that sense i`m probably a follower of Ajahn Brahms "Hahayana".
I´ve discovered buddhism five years ago when Dhammalokas Youtube Channel opened and since then i`ve downloaded a lot of talks (8 GB MP3 Player and 16 GB Car Radio).
Most of them are Ajahn Brahms, his Sutta Study talks are in a class of its own :thumbsup:
To improve my practise i´m going to attend a retreat this year at Amaravati.

That beeing said... i'm looking forward to have lots of interesting discussions. :toast: (but i really wonder why there is a beer smiley haha)

With Metta
Chris

Higher than lordship over all earth,
Higher than sojourning in heavens supreme,
Higher than empire over all the worlds,
Is Fruit of Entrance to the Dhamma Stream.

It's not beer, it's orange juice that's past the date.

Greetings Chris,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha2:

Metta,
Retro. :)
