Hello Hola Ciao Salut

Postby ekayana » Mon Mar 02, 2009 7:21 pm

Hi everyone! I just joined this forum and thought I'd introduce myself briefly. I'm a 23 year old Theravadin Buddhist from Lancashire, England. I hope to be able to discuss the Buddha-Dhamma with like minded individuals.

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Greetings and welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:hello:

Metta,

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)
