Howdy.

Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.

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

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

Metta,
Retro. :)
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

Greetings Mark and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
kind regards,

loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
