Greetings from Canada

Postby Joe33060 » Thu Sep 12, 2013 9:21 pm

Hi my name is Joe I recently move to Montreal from Florida were I spend for many years. I work in medicine for twenty years, also did security work. I am interested in vipassana meditation now. I became Buddhist about eighteen years this was a gradual process I did some research as to what I was comfortable with, and resulted in the Therevada practice . I like to travel I have been southeast Asia many times. I hope to learn more in discussions about the Buddha, Dhamma, Sangha and noble truth also meditation practice.

Welcome Joe!

“What should be done for his disciples out of compassion by a teacher who seeks their welfare and has compassion for them, that I have done for you, bhikkhus. There are these roots of trees, these empty huts. Meditate, bhikkhus, do not delay or else you will regret it later. This is our instruction to you.” - MN 19
