Just wanted to say hello and introduce myself to all on the Dhamma Wheel. I have always been of the psychological / philosophical bent and over the past year or so "Buddhism" has become my latest subject of interest. I started out with various books on Zen, a few on Tibetan, and now almost exclusively am reading Theravada literature. I have read some Ajahn Brahm, Ajahn Chah, The Digha Nikaya and am almost done with the Majjhima Nikaya. I had started the Visuddhimagga earlier, so I will probably finish that next. I also picked up a book by George Grimm... In any event, I really like this forum as there are lots of posts to look over and the folks here really seem cool. Best wishes and look forward to learning from you all....

Hi rawayurveda 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

Welcome rawayurveda!

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

The non-doing of any evil,
the performance of what’s skillful,
the cleansing of ones own mind:
this is the teaching of the Awakened.

- Dhp 183

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.


Best wishes for your studies - if your reading brings any issues to mind that you wish to discuss then by all means do.
