Hi everyone, I am from Taiwan, i just happened to click into this website,when googleing vinaya rules about vehicle usage . I am a bit of a fan of Thanissaro Bhikkhu. Were it not for his work , what Buddhism mean for me would be totally otherwise .
Really glad to bump into this forum :jumping:

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

To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

Hi, tou, nice to meet you!


You will not be punished FOR your 'emotions'; you will be punished BY your 'emotions'.


Pay attention, simplify, and (Meditation instruction in a nutshell) "Mind - the Gap."
‘Absit invidia verbo’ - may ill-will be absent from the word. And mindful of that, if I don't respond, this may be why....

Dear Tou,

Nice to meet you. I am also new to Dhamma Wheel.

'Buddhistboy' is my username, even though I want to make it perfectly clear that I am not a boy. I am an adult.
