Hello and nice to meet you :)

Postby Kris » Tue Jul 30, 2013 1:33 am

Hi, my name is kris and i joined this website waning to find and be able to talk to other Buddhists whom are studying and practicing the various teachings within Buddhism :)
Ive been researching and looking into Buddhism for a while now, having read Afew books such as various books which share extracts of the Pali canon and it's teachings, gone on websites and practiced Buddhist teachings and meditations. I wanted to find Buddhists ( as there seems to be a lack of any Buddhists groups or temples in my area) who knew more than I did and where willing to share their viwes and knowledge with me to help to improve my own understanding of Buddhism and the texts In it :)
So thanks for looking at my introduction, and please excuse any spelling mistakes or other mistakes I made in it :), I hope we can chat sometime, bye :)
Kris :)

Greetings Kris and welcome!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.
