Greetings from Russia

Post by onmitt » Thu Nov 12, 2009 8:30 pm

Hi all !
Been practicing Theravada since 2001.
I'm glad I found this place... with like minded people to talk to, because where I live Theravada is nonexistent :alien:

Hi Onmitt

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
For most of us, Theravada is non-existent where we live!
I look forward to read your contributons!

“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.

Welcome friend

You may also find like-minded people at http://dhamma.ru/forum/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; , if you have not been there already.
