Hi All!

Hi all!

Have been a practicing Buddhist for many years and am not too crazy about forums since they become too addictive. I'll probably drop in a few times and hopefully learn and hoping I can be of some help to others understand a few things as well. Then I might disappear if I see I'm posting too much. :tongue:

Thanks David! Theravada is so fundamental, in Mahayana, there are so many mantras and sutras promising fantastic things…I got way too tuckered out and just let it all go-- it all went back to "Focus on breathing in, breathing out"…there's nothing like Anapansati! :heart: :heart: :heart: It's the most relaxing yet focused practice ever devised. It clears up asavas like nothing else.

Hi Mahat and welcome to DW!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

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

Welcome!

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

Welcome, mahat. :anjali:
Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."

(SN 22.97)
