Howdy.

Postby Kingdubrock » Tue Aug 20, 2013 9:53 pm

I have actually been posting for about a week and havent introduced myself yet.
So, hi! :smile:

My name is Mark. I live in Toronto. I've been into the dharma for about 14 years now. Went back to grad school after i lost my job and am doing my thesis about mindfulness in all its currently popular contexts - Buddhist, MBSR and "Langerian".
Some of my questions will likely be related to my work. But I also spend waaay too much time in isolation reading and writing since I've been in school, and would also enjoy just hanging out and talking shop with y'all.

Love,
Mark

Greetings,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

Metta,
Retro. :)
What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)

Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'.
(Snp 3.6)

Greetings Mark and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
kind regards,

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
