Hello Dhamma Wheel, :)

I am called Dave, and I'm new to Buddhist practice. That is to say that I've been studying and applying the Buddha's teachings to my life since October of 2011, and am continually seeking out new resources on the subject so as to expand my practice.

Just kinda stumbled upon this this site last night as I was getting ready for bed and decided I ought to open an account -- take every opportunity to connect with like-minded persons.

I look forward to meeting some new people here and hope that the experience works out to everyone's mutual benefit. :)

Welcome Dave! May you make an end to sufffering!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

Hi Dave and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
“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
