Hello, I welcome you warmly

Post by FallAway » Tue Aug 15, 2017 4:12 am

Hellos all around. I've been a practising lay Buddhist for almost a decade, on my own. I came into Buddhism through the Theravada teachings, looked into others from this safe home base and will likely remain with it.

Looking forward to learning and sharing. :namaste:

Thank you for your welcomes. :smile: Would like to tag you all but don't know how yet.

I'd like to participate in the study groups and discussions in time. Is there one particular version of the Canon that is used when we study as a group? If so, could I get a link or links to a free PDF download? Want to be on the same page as everyone else!

Still reading around...lots to click into, all very interesting. Will enjoy getting to know the forum and members of my new Sangha.

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.

- Upasika Kee Nanayan

Thank you both. Enjoying the threads and discussions very much. I like the "keep it real" feeling I'm getting. Best place of all to practice in...the what is.
