Hello

Post by Nuggets » Fri May 05, 2017 10:36 pm

Hi everyone

I recently discovered the beauty of vipassana meditation after several years dabbling in the Tibetan tradition.

I reside in Geelong (near Melbourne) in Australia.

Nice to meet you all - looking forward to discussing the dhamma with you :smile:

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.

always centered, the monk
