Hello from Costa Rica

Postby felipe » Sat May 11, 2013 3:26 pm

Hello everyone.

I started learning about buddhism some 3 years ago, I started in Zen but Theravada is the one that convinced me that this is the way.

I hope this community will help me learn more, understand it better and hopefully I will be able to help back some day too :)

Best regards,
Felipe

Hola Filipe! Welcome to Dhammawheel.
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
- Lokavipatti Sutta

Greetings felipe and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
