Aloha from Cali

Postby KealaKC » Sun Feb 17, 2013 11:06 pm

Hi, My name is Keala and I'm in rural northern California. I've been privately practicing more on the line of Theravada Buddhism for about a decade now. I have never joined with other Buddhists, since there are none I know of in this area. I have much to learn, and have been absorbing as much information online as I can :)

Welcome Keala!

:anjali:
“What should be done for his disciples out of compassion by a teacher who seeks their welfare and has compassion for them, that I have done for you, bhikkhus. There are these roots of trees, these empty huts. Meditate, bhikkhus, do not delay or else you will regret it later. This is our instruction to you.” - MN 19

Greetings Keala,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

Metta,
Retro. :)
"Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'."
(Snp 3.6)

"Whether I were to preach in brief, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach in detail, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach both in brief or in detail, Sāriputta, rare are those who understand." (A I 333, Sāriputtasutta)
