Hello from the U.K

Postby Craigyboy » Sun Oct 18, 2009 9:35 pm

My name is Craig and I from the U.K. I have been learning about Buddhism for the past year and have begun the process of trying to practising it more seriously recently.

I hope to give share my experiences with you all and learn about yours.

Welcome friend

"For a disciple who has conviction in the Teacher's message & lives to penetrate it, what accords with the Dhamma is this:
'The Blessed One is the Teacher, I am a disciple. He is the one who knows, not I." - MN. 70 Kitagiri Sutta

Hi Craig
:anjali:
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
John Stuart Mill
