Introduction

Post by samseva » Sat Jan 18, 2014 1:20 pm

I've been on the forums for quite some time, decided to register to ask a few important questions and possibly join a few discussions. I am currently preparing to ordain.

Kind regards,

:anjali:

hi samseva,

welcome and congratulations on your noble plan to ordain
Aflame with the fire of passion, the fire of aversion, the fire of delusion.
Aflame, with birth, aging & death, with sorrows, lamentations, pains, distresses, & despairs ......

Seeing thus, the disciple of the Noble One grows disenchanted. SN 35.28

Welcome!
