Been a long time!

Post by K.Dhamma » Mon Jan 09, 2017 10:19 pm

I used to frequent these boards and am now returning. Just wanting to say hello! My name is Kelly, Illinois, USA. Practicing Theravada Buddhism for about 8 years. How is everyone?!

Welcome!

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.

Welcome back! I love the quote in your signature!

— Ajahn Chah
May the blessings of the Buddha, the Dhamma, and the Sangha always be firmly established in your hearts.
