Combining a few of the ideas above, we've now created a "Discovering Theravada" forum, which is "A forum for beginners and members of other Buddhist traditions to ask questions about Theravada (The Way of the Elders)". Good for beginners in the sense of those completely new to Buddhism, but also for those with exposure to other Buddhist traditions.
What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)
Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'. (Snp 3.6)
