Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.
I am a 'newcomer', tentatively exploring Buddhism. It is good to have found this forum and to be with you.
you have had the good chance to fall amongst the friendliest, most helpful and willing bunch of people you could ever want.
I count myself priviledged to be here, and I hope you reap much benefit from your stay here.
*Namaste* and metta.

Lovely to have you here. If there's anything you can think of (especially in your capacity as a 'newcomer') which you think would improve your experience here, please drop a note in the Suggestion Box!
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)'We should not congratulate someone on the success of their misdeeds, but on the contrary should endeavour to advise him or her to lead a more skilful and wholesome life. If such advice is ignored then we can only give up and let go' - Phra PanyapatipoDharma Wheel (Mahayana / Vajrayana forum)

G'day Ben and thank you, and all who kindly left messages, for the words of welcome!
Hi and welcome hope to see you around!
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

"Others will misconstrue reality due to their personal perspectives, doggedly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our own personal perspectives, nor doggedly holding onto them, but will discard them easily. This effacement shall be done."
