Hello everybody

Post by lotuskaruna » Sat Nov 03, 2012 8:15 am

Hi buddhist friends :hug:

I'm so glad to be here, to read inspiring, important teachings that really make me feel calm and happy. I don't have buddhist friends, my friends and family are catholic or atheist, but they don't even think about espirituality as something important in this life. I guess I always wanted to find some answer for those philosophical questions, maybe not God neither Buddha can give it to me, just myself, through looking deep inside of me. :smile:

Thank you,
May all be happy, well and free :anjali:

Greetings 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 lotuskaruna!

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 no struggling, no thinking,
the mind, still,
will see cause and effect
vanishing in the Void.
Attached to nothing, letting go:
Know that this is the way
to allay all stress.

- Upasika Kee Nanayan

Welcome! Sorry I missed your introduction earlier!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.
