Hello from Mexico

Postby dilexi » Sat Aug 15, 2009 4:09 am

Hello,
I'm a North American living in Mexico. I've been practicing Insight meditation for a few years now with teachers who have done teacher training at Spirit Rock in Northern California. While in Mexico, I've also been studying a little bit of Tibetan Buddhism.
I came across this forum while looking for advice on how to find some specific teachings of the Buddha (having to do with social justice) and felt compelled to join. I miss my Theravada Sangha back home and am happy to discover this forum!

Hi And welcome
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.
"Others will misconstrue reality based on personal perspectives, firmly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our personal perspectives, nor firmly holding them, but easily discarded."

Greetings dilexi,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha1:

Metta,
Retro. :)
“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)

What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)

"If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 50 years ago, a liberal 25 years ago and a racist today." (Thomas Sowell)
