Another "Moin"

Post by acinteyyo » Mon Jun 01, 2009 11:24 am

Moin,

so what can I say... My name is Florian. I'm 23 years old and I live in Neuburg/Germany.
I'm able to read and understand english quite well, but my writing experience, especially with respect to these particular buddhism topics, is rather nothing. So I guess the terminology needed for efficient conversation or discussion does not really exist at the moment.
However I'm going to read the topics and I think thereby I'll learn enough sophisticated vocab so that we could have some helpful conversation some day.
Since I read a book about the 4 noble truths, I decided to read up on it. Well so I came to buddhism - especially to Theravada.
So far so good...kind regards

Hi & Welcom :hello:
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Moin moin!
Rain soddens what is kept wrapped up,
But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.

Moin,Moin Florian. :smile:

I know you by name from another (german) forum. Nice to meet you here. :namaste:

To my introduction:
I come from (not so far) nothern germany and I'm aged 46 years. My first contact with buddhism was about 1996. After some years of searching and learning the teachings of the different schools I returned back to the pure teachings of the Buddha. I'm also influenced by the Thai Forest Tradition and the writings of Nanavira Thera.

With best wishes

Only in a vertical view, straight down into the abyss of his own personal existence, is a man capable of apprehending the perilous insecurity of his situation; and only a man who does apprehend this is prepared to listen to the Buddha's Teaching.

Yes, I did.

I thought about it, too. But I'll stay for a while and watch how the things will develop.

Yes, the things will change over and over again. That's what the Buddha taught. :namaste:

Do you mean "Buddhaland"?

I left the forum about a half year ago... there were too many smart-alecks :thinking:

btw.: We have met at StudiVZ some time ago :smile:
