hello from venice, ca

Post by bryandavis » Sun Oct 07, 2012 7:50 am

Hello all. My name is Bryan Davis and I am a dharma student who live in venice, ca. I have been involved in Dharma not that long, since about 1999. But it has really impacted my life in a profound way.

Just wanted to say hello to those that post here. I practice mainly in the tibetan lineages but look forward to discussing vipassana and sitting cultivation here. i read as a guest a lot but thought i might as well join:)

if you want to check out my latest journey im trying to partake there is a link below.

Hello Bryan,

Welcome to DhammaWheel! :group:

If you are hoping to get to teachings by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche and the Dalai Lama, you might be better posting over on our sister site DharmaWheel – as this forum is a Theravada forum. Here is the link to the Mahayana and Vajrayana board:

Greetings Bryan and welcome!
“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.

Welcome Bryan!

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 to DW Bryan!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.
