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.

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Greetings Alex,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha2:

Metta,
Retro. :)
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)


Exalted in mind, just open and clearly aware, the recluse trained in the ways of the sages:
One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7
