Greetings

Postby dhamma_learner » Wed May 29, 2013 4:14 am

Hello All,

My name is Tristan. I am a college student with an interest in Mathematics, Physics, and Philosophy. I am relatively new to the practice of meditation and to the study of the Dhamma. I came to the realization early on that the way of Theravada seems to be the most reasonable and logical perspective on the Buddha's teachings. Currently I practice meditation alone but I am beginning to search for local groups or centers nearby (Bay Area, California). I will certainly have many questions about meditation and Buddhist literature, and will most definitely seek the advice of more experienced members of the forums. I greatly look forward to future discussions with all of you.

With Metta,

dhamma_learner (Tristan Miano)

Greetings Tristan 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.
