I have been interested in buddhism quite some years (from 2006 or ´07) and done some practice, too. Lately I have thought of becoming a monk so I joined this forum to get more information about it. Theravada is clearly my tradition, other types of buddhism I don't like so much if at all.

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.

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 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.

To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

Nice to meet you @primitiveresonance, I am new to this site as well. I am sure you will find many answers to your questions. There are many well educated and experienced people here. I am looking forward to interacting with you as well :candle: .
