Hello Hello Hello!

Post by Paribbajaka » Fri Jun 01, 2012 1:24 am

Greetings everyone!

I have stalked around on these forums for about a year now and have decided it might be time to finally make an account.

I've been practicing Buddhism for a few years now, having begun with Korean Zen before settling in to Theravada. My primary teacher is a Laotian monk from the forest tradition.

I am looking forward to discussing the Dhamma with you all!


:anjali:
May all beings be happy!

Welcome Paribbajaka

"With regard to internal factors, I don't envision any other single factor like appropriate attention as doing so much for a monk in training, who has not attained the goal but remains intent on the unsurpassed safety from bondage. A monk who attends appropriately abandons what is unskillful and develops what is skillful."
- from the Itivuttaka
