Hello fellow Dharmafarers

Post by Calahand » Thu Dec 10, 2009 4:19 pm

Hello!
I am new to buddhism, and I really liked theravada, I used to go to this site called "e-sangha" to learn about theravada buddhism, but i guess thats down or something. Its so nice to find a site again to learn more about theravada buddhism and its practice. So in order to stay connected and learn more, here I am. :thumbsup:

Hi
hope you find here useful
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
John Stuart Mill
