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:

Kind regards

Greetings and welcome, livindesert!

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)

One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7
