I am a Buddhist from a place called Budaševo(Buddhashevo)

Postby smokey » Sat Aug 01, 2009 8:32 pm

Hello everyone. My name is Goran, I am 21 years old and live in Croatia, in a place called Budaševo (pronounced Buddhashevo). I have taken my interest in Buddhism a long time ago. I have become a Buddhist about a year ago, perhaps a year and a half. I am a very spiritual person and have a crazy, sometimes weird sense for humor. My friends call me smokey. If anyone wishes to become my facebook friend, then by all means, please add me. Here is the link to my profile: http://www.facebook.com/goran.smolcic .

:hello:

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

I like the name of that town! Is it a coincidence or is there any historical connection to Buddhism?

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

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Sutta Nipata 3.725

Thank you for welcoming me to this wonderful forum. The name of the place is a coincidence. It is named after Count Budaš(Buddhash) who lived here a long time ago and this place was his property.

Welcome!

Nice to see other young people here. I'm 23 and live in the States. It's always fun to meet other young Buddhists.
