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.

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

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

Greetings and welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

: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)”
