Adrien from France

Postby Adrien » Mon Jan 25, 2010 9:50 pm

Hi everyone,

my name is Adrien, I'm 25 and I'm french. I've been quite disappointed by the quality of french buddhist forum, and a friend, told me about this one. I've read some of the topics, and I'm very glad to have found this kind of knowledge quality and attitude quality.

As you can see, my english is not very good, but I can understand the most part of your writings. I'm sorry for my syntax, but I'll do my best !

I discovered buddhisme about 2-3 years ago, and I took about one year to discover Theravada (which is not popular at all in France). I've restarted my studies over, and now I study science to become teacher. But my aim is to become a monk, after about five years of lay and active life (I mean with a job).

I think that's it ! I hope to have great discussions with all of you, even if I read a lot more than I write...

Thanks for your welcome !

ps : please don't hesitate to correct my english if you want to.

Welcome Adrien! Were happy to have you.

“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.

For what it's worth... your debut post was not difficult to read.

Hi & Welcome to Dhamma Wheel


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Adrien,
Je n'ai pas tous les accents sur mon clavier, mais je te souhaite une bienvenue chaleureuse!
J'ai vecu en france pour six ans, depuis '99, et je suis rentree en Angleterre en juin 2006.
Mois, j'ai enseigne le Qi Gong pendant mon sejour la, et j'avais une belle et heureuse classe des eleves (tous adults).
Pendant ce temps, j'ai transmis que j'etais Bouddhiste, mais, bien sur, les authorites l'ont regarde comme un culte.....
Plusieurs personnes individuelles ont demontree une curiosite positive, et bien, une dame en particuliere s'est 'converti' au Bouddhisme a cause de ma connaissance.
mais pour la pluspart, ils avaient une suspicion, et ils se sont eloignes.
malgres ceci, il y a un refuge de Thich Nhat hahn au sud de la France, et aussi plusieurs centres de bouddhisme (Pour la plupart Mahayana) a travers la France.
C'est bien sur, il faut voyager un peu....

Je t'embrasse,

Gros bises,
namaste!

Hi Adrien,

nice to see you here : )

the web in English is much wider and richer. Almost another realm.

So now, after having made this step, you won't need to read my translations any more : )

It will very soon become natural for you to read in English : )

But if you want to keep correcting my mistakes, I won't dismiss you : )
