I am just popping in to say hi :jumping: I heard this site was a good place to get a good Theravada education. I am currently practicing Nichiren Buddhism but am not sure about staying with that. This site looks pretty good so far . Nice to meet you all :jumping:

Hi Livindesert

Whichever tradition you end up practicing, you are more than welcome here at Dhamma Wheel!
Kind regards

“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.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Hello Livindesert,

Thanks for joining us. :smile:

Best wishes,
Dhammanando Bhikkhu
    Yathā bubbuḷakaṃ passe, yathā passe marīcikaṃ,
    Evaṃ lokaṃ avekkhantaṃ, maccurājā na passati.

    One should see it as a bubble;
    One should see it as a mirage.
    Who regards the world thus
    The King of Death sees him not.
    (Dhammapada 170)

    ผู้ที่มองเห็นโลก ว่าไม่จีรังและหาสาระอะไรมิได้
    คนเช่นนี้พญามารย่อมตามหาไม่พบ ฯ
    (ธรรมบท ๑๗๐)

Hi :hello:
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Greetings and welcome, livindesert!
