Saludos desde San Juan, Texas

Postby chapulincolorado » Mon Jan 19, 2009 8:01 pm

Hello to all from right in the smack of the border between TX and Mexico. I am member of my local group (flor de nopal sangha). I am also a sub member at eSangha and Treeleaf.

I am happy to see such forum exists and being able to learn more about the Dhamma and Buddha.

Welcome chapulincolorado. Hope you find something useful here and I also hope you are as warm in Texas as we are cold in Massachusetts. :)

Hi :hello:
“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.”

Welcome chapulincolorado to Dhamma Wheel!
Thanks for joining us here.
