May the Dhamma flourish

Postby Che Guebuddha » Sat Jun 01, 2013 7:00 pm

Hallo to all of you Dhamma practitioners. I salute you. :anjali:

Im here in hope to get moralized/energised/inspired to set on the Dhammic journey I once walked and got distracted from. My Dhammic raft got hit by a tunder storm and I fell off of it into the mundain current of the worldly river carried down the stream with so many others of our kin, drowning in ignorance and greed.

Practiced daily Shamatha-Vipassana for 3 Years. Couple 3 days solo retreats.

Everything went "fine" (for whom) until my Dhammic raft hit the turbulent waters of the Dukkha Nanas and turned the blissful clouds of Arising'n'Passing into the Darkest Night.

Red books: everything from Ingram to Brahm, Bhikkhu Bodhi to Thanissaro Bhikkhu and Gunaratana.

Thank you for having me here. May we all benefit from the Dhamma
Up the river,
on and on,
The Practice carries on,
on the Dhammic raft.

Hey there

Hope your stay is profitable :)

"And so, because this Teaching is so different from what Westerners are accustomed to, they will try to adapt the Teaching to their own framework. What they need to learn to do is not to adapt the Teaching to their own point of view but to adapt their own point of view to the Teaching. This is called saddhá, or faith, and it means giving oneself to the Teaching even if the Teaching is contrary to one’s own preconceived notions of the way things are."- Ven Bodhesako
