Hello!

:namaste:

I have been troubled by negative thoughts in my mind for while, until I started looking into Buddhism and following Sakyamuni Buddha's path to end suffering. Theravada has and still is helping me greatly sustain inner peace through dedicated meditation. Also of course, following the Eightfold Path and reminding myself of verses from the Dhammapada.

It is great that I came across a forum containing other dedicated followers of Theravada. I look forward to learning more from all of you.

Hi Jacksin and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Greetings,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha1:

Metta,
Retro. :)
“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”
