Post by Jack Charles » Thu Nov 22, 2012 7:51 am

What's up people, I have been reading off this site for a couple days and finally have decided to become part of it. I hate technology sometimes but being able to have access to such a wealth of knowledge is truly a gift I think. I am from central Wisconsin and there isn't anywhere to discuss Buddhism in my area, at least not that I have found. And none of my friends are really into Buddhism or know enough about the teachings to discuss them, not that I am an expert. All I have been doing up until now is just listening to talks on the Internet and reading books. But I feel to help deepen my understanding of some things it would help to grapple with theese ideas with others, and to ask and answer questions, and to investigate with others what is REALLY going on here hahaha. Anyways I am glad to be here and am glad that here is here.

Welcome Jack!

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.
