Hello

Postby Danny » Wed Feb 18, 2009 8:18 am

First of all: Great forum!
My name is Danny I'm from the Netherlands. I have been interested in buddhism for a long time now, but only started practicing it seriously about six or seven months ago, I don't have guidens as in a teacher, or a Sangha, but will go for a retreat very soon. I'm still looking for the right retreat to develop my Satipatthana practice.
As for my background; I've been both christian and atheist, I really have put a lot of effort and thinking in what could be the path for me, and buddhism seems to be it. Everything I vaguely knew, the Buddha seems to have clarified, and is in the Pali-canon.

Thank you for reading and see you in one of the threads!

Metta,

Danny

Greetings and welcome.

:hello:

Metta,
Retro. :)
“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”

Hi Danny,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel. :smile:
