Hello from the Great White North!

Postby jadborn » Sat May 25, 2013 3:00 pm

Hello DhammaWheel!

My name is Jake, I am currently 19 years old and living in Perth, Ontario. I came across Buddhism a number of years ago and while the teachings didn't instantly resonate with me, over time they have come to be more and more important to me. I haven't actually attended a monastery yet even though there is a Thai Forest sangha very close to me. But I plan to! :) I've joined this forum to further my knowledge of the Dhamma, and hopefully participate in some good discussion!

Greetings Jake and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.
