Good Evening..................unless you live somewhere else

Postby davemiller » Thu Aug 01, 2013 1:40 am

All the introductory threads have said it all, but here I go.

This is a great site. I have been reading and studying for awhile. One answer leads to another question, etc.

58 year old Texan.

When I read threads and see how much there is to learn, wow. I look forward to absorbing some of the wisdom and results of the scholarship and practice of the members here.

I am happy to be here.

Buddhism is proving effective in my life.

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

tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Welcome!
