Hi from Melbourne

Postby jrh001 » Sat Jan 24, 2009 5:03 am

Greetings to all,

I may not post here often but will drop in to read and learn.

I've registered to show my support for this new venture. I trust that those who contribute their knowledge and wisdom will always remember the importance of compassion.

best wishes,

JohnH :coffee:

Welcome John
Yes, compassion, mutual respect and friendliness are some of the underlying values of Dhamma Wheel.

“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

Welcome
:hello:
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”

"Others will misconstrue reality based on personal perspectives, firmly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our personal perspectives, nor firmly holding them, but easily discarded."
