Hello from darkest Yorkshire

Post by 1320 » Tue Feb 07, 2017 12:14 pm

Hello , I'm Luke I live on the edge of the Peak District in sleepy Yorkshire. I am new to this, so please excuse my lack of knowledge, I'm hoping very much to change this. I'm looking to learn and grow, I'd love to make friends and maybe find someone to teach me. I cannot get to meetings or groups due to personal difficulties but I long to grow as a person.

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.
