Hello from Simon

Postby resistingSi » Sat Aug 31, 2013 6:54 pm

Hi World

I am middle aged and have had a few years in asia, from UK tho.

I always feel better when I get closer to this subject.

I want to chat a little, not too technically about the teachings though at this stage.

What happened to e-sangha... that was a great forum - hope this one is too :)

Welcome Simon!

To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

is there some discomfort between mayayana and theravada views which is a bit hostile?

I thought one was original interpretation and the other a natural development?

Me personally I gained a lot from the theravada experience in thailand but also very interested in tibetan (vajrayana) and shaivism. Is there a compatability problem or is it that some individuals cant agree to manage a forum with variety of views?
