Another hello from the UK

Post by Teramangalho » Sat Jan 16, 2016 2:28 pm

Hey everyone, good to meet you all. I've been a Buddhist for five years and have knuckled down to the practice in the last two years or so, following a Vipassana retreat.

Am looking forward to getting to know the community and learning more about these wonderful teachings.

With metta,

T

Thanks for the welcome everyone!

And thanks for that link, Thinker, as I logged on I wondered about asking for a recommendation for a Dhamma book and there it was already :)

Welcome!

:namaste:
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 no struggling, no thinking,
the mind, still,
will see cause and effect
vanishing in the Void.
Attached to nothing, letting go:
Know that this is the way
to allay all stress.

- Upasika Kee Nanayan
