hi folks, jon here.

i'm Mahayana but this year am really looking to ground myself in the Pali Canon and take it steady with Abhidhamma. i may lurk more than i post but i'm sure i'll have plenty to learn from everyone here.

thanks for having me :smile:

Welcome!

To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

Hi and 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.”
