Hi from Sweden!

Postby Brandon » Fri Dec 14, 2012 5:59 am

Hello!

My name is Brandon and I come from Sweden. I'm fairly new to Buddhism, I have read some books and meditated a little bit on and off. I joined this forum because I want to learn more about Theravada Buddhism and find peace in my mind.

I hope I found the right place, I know it is the right Buddhist tradition I have chosen anyway.

Sincerely, Brandon

There is freedom from birth, freedom from becoming, freedom from making, freedom from conditioning. If there were not this freedom from birth, freedom from becoming, freedom from making, freedom from conditioning, then escape from that which is birth, becoming, making, conditioning, would not be known here. -- Ud 80

Hi Brandon and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
“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.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
