Howdy people of Dhamma Wheel from Fresno, CA

Postby new_student_ejs_135 » Thu May 23, 2013 11:25 pm

I'm new to the site, as well as to Buddhism. I actually have a question though, I only know a little bit, and I don't know where to begin as far as the actually practice of Buddhism; So, where do I begin?

Thanks in Advance.

Greetings,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha1:

Metta (loving-kindness),
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)

Neither traceable in the Discourses nor verifiable by the Discipline, one must conclude thus: 'Certainly, this is not the Blessed One's utterance; this has been misunderstood by that bhikkhu — or by that community, or by those elders, or by that elder.' In that way, bhikkhus, you should reject it. (DN 16)
