Hi from uh... I'm not sure

Postby alex jansen » Sat Oct 17, 2009 3:19 am

Was in search of a peaceful noob-friendly Buddhist forum when I came across this forum.

I've been attracted to the Theravadan school for years. Yet to take the 3 refuges but hoping to by year end.

I'm sort of in-between countries now, sometimes in Singapore, sometimes in Hong Kong, sometimes Malaysia, and probably will be in the UK by Christmas.

Hope to learn something here. See you guys in the forum.

“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.

Greetings Alex,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha2:

Metta,
Retro. :)
“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”
