Hello everyone, it's good to be here! My name is Aslan, I've been studying Buddhism for less than a year and have only begun applying some teachings recently. I hope I can contribute something of worth to the community, and get help to further my own practice

Thank you, I look forward to meeting you all!

Welcome Aslan!

: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.

- Upasika Kee Nanayan

Welcome to the forum :heart:
"One is not noble who has injures living beings.
One is called 'noble' because they are harmless to all living beings."

"Silent in body, silent in speech,
Silent in the mind, without defilement,
Blessed is silence is the sage.
One is truely washed of evil."
