Welcome m12_shakes!

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

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.

:hello:

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

Nice avatar! Is that a pawn seeing himself as a king? Or just an interest in chess?

Thank you all for the warm welcome :smile:

David, to answer your question, it's both! The pawn has the capability to be the most powerful piece on the board (i.e namely the queen) and I do LOVE chess :geek:
Kindest regards,
