Back To DW

Post by No_Mind » Sun Nov 20, 2016 1:06 pm

After two weeks of self imposed exile I am back.

You are some of the nicest, kindest, and most non-judgemental people I have ever known. A sangha of really good people I could not stay away from. In short I missed you guys too much :hug:

Please consider this my second innings in Theravada Buddhism (though I have decided to read a little bit about Mahayana, about which I know next to nothing, for next few months and broaden my understanding of Buddhism) .. [I meant a cricket innings which can take up to two days and sixteen hours of play not baseball innings ..]

I will not get into arguments about anattā again. That one is unfathomable till one progresses in ones practice. I remain agnostic at this moment to belief in soul/no-soul, rebirth/single birth and workings of Kamma. My major task going forward will be cultivation of sīla over the next decade.

Does not mean I will not take part in little bit of intellectual scrimmage or take a pot shot now and then .. but just for a post or three .. no more arguing for three days across dozen pages.

Welcome back!

Although we may have disagreed a few times I would have considered it a great loss to the forum if you did not return.
