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!
“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
