Hello all

Postby Cianna200 » Mon Feb 17, 2014 1:36 pm

Hi I'm Cianna. I love Buddhism. I'm not a Buddhist myself but I did have a Buddhist friend whom I've sadly lost contact with. My religion is Wicca and there is little I know about Buddhism. Buddhism,Wicca,taoism,Jainism are so far the only religions I like.

This is our foundation: to have sati, recollection, and sampajañña, self-awareness, whether standing, walking, sitting, or reclining. Whatever arises, just leave it be, don't cling to it. Be it like or dislike, happiness or suffering, doubt or certainty... Don't try to label everything, just know it. See that all the things that arise in the mind are simply sensations. They are transient. They arise, exist and cease. That's all there is to them, they have no self or being, they are neither ''us'' nor ''them.'' They are not worthy of clinging to, any of them. - Ajahn Chah

Welcome Cianna.

Buddhaṃ saraṇaṃ gacchāmi
Dhammaṃ saraṇaṃ gacchāmi
Saṅghaṃ saraṇaṃ gacchāmi

Hatred is never appeased by hatred in this world; by non-hatred alone is hatred appeased. This is an eternal law.

Greetings 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.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
