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. :)
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)

Hi Danny,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel. :smile:
    ...and this thought arose in the mind of the Blessed One:
    “Who lives without reverence lives miserably.”
