Hi there,

What would you folks think of a beginners section?

Thanks,

In reply to Drolma,

I personally think a 'beginners section' stereotypes matters too much (given often beginners have quite profound questions to ask).

Kind regards,

Hi
I think a section with nothing but links to the enculcopedia wiki would be good it is always good to brush up on the basics

Greetings Drolma,

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.

Metta,
Retro. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Never again...
