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

Ben
“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.”

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

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