Hello from Phoenix, Arizona

Postby AZwvr » Sat Aug 22, 2009 5:13 pm

I am delighted to find Dharmma Wheel. My spiritual journey is a long and varied one, enough to say that I am returning to my Buddhist study and hope to establish a firm daily practice. I have studied Buddhism on and off throughout much of my adult life and now at 62, and retired, I find this strong attraction once again. This morning I read with great interest the the topic: Theravada and Zen - a comparative analysis. What a great topic for discussion and one that I currently have a keen interest in.
My greetings to all on Dharmma Wheel....Larry

Greetings Larry,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

Metta,

If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)
