Introducing myself

Post by sati » Wed Jan 16, 2013 9:43 pm

Hello,

I am happy to be here. Thanks for offering such a useful and inspiring online place.

I have been introduced to Theravada through S.N. Goenka and B.Gunaratana 's books, and I am still a beginner.

with Metta, :smile:

Welcome Aboard Sati!
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.

Welcome Sati!

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.
