Hi Everyone

Postby arijitmitter » Sun Jun 30, 2013 11:59 am


My name is Arijit and I stay in Calcutta, India.
For about last 18 months I have felt a strong inner attraction towards Lord Buddha. There are very few Buddhist monasteries in Calcutta and none that are " inviting " to an inquisitive stranger [ none that hold discourses of any kind or explain anything if you ask; they hold daily prayers in evening which public are allowed to attend ].
So I am glad to have found this Forum of like minded individuals. Very glad to be part of this Forum with all of you.

Hi Arijit and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
I am glad you have found us.
kind regards,

“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 Arjit! Every good blessing to you! :anjali:
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.
