Hello

Postby Tessa Danube » Tue Sep 12, 2017 1:44 pm

I am fairly new to Buddhism and have been spending time reading books on the subject and hope to learn with this online forum since money and distant makes it hard to get to the local Center I have been trying to find an online sangha as well.

Welcome!

:namaste:
To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5


"Dont send the mind outside. Watch the mind right at the mind."

- Ajahn Dune Atulo

Welcome! Yuttadhammo Bhikkhu runs an online meditation group, and it may be the kind of sangha you are looking for.
May the blessings of the Buddha, the Dhamma, and the Sangha always be firmly established in your hearts.
