New here

Post by Donnyy »

Hello everyone. For several years I have been trying to explain to myself why I live, and so I could not find the answer to this question. Quite by accident, I read an article that mentioned Buddhism, and it became very interesting for me to study it in more detail. At the moment I am new to this, and some concepts, observance of rituals and other points are unfamiliar to me. Came here to clear this up. Thank you very much for letting me in here.

Welcome :thumbsup:
“In the same way, great king, when a bhikkhu sees that these five hindrances are unabandoned within himself, he regards that as a debt, as a sickness, as confinement in prison, as slavery, as a desert road.

“But when he sees that these five hindrances have been abandoned within himself, he regards that as freedom from debt, as good health, as release from prison, as freedom from slavery, as a place of safety.”
