Another new guy

Postby The Salamander » Mon Sep 16, 2013 8:15 pm

Been stumbling down the path for about 2 years now, piecing things together as I go along. Started off with an interest in Zen, delved into the golden age Chan and Sanlun of China, went on into Madhyamaka and have now settled into where I feel I should have began: a Thai Forest Theravada perspective based around the teachings of Thanissaro Bikkhu.
I requested books from Metta Forest Monastery and have been digging into Thanissaro Bikkhu's Dhamma talks for the last few months and am finally feeling like things are coming together. I'm here hoping to find true dhamma friends to discuss the path with and to learn what I can from those who have gone forth before me.

Welcome salamander!

“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
