Rejoining

Post by phil » Tue Sep 19, 2017 3:10 am

Hi all

I participated here off and on in the past but would like to rejoin and get a bit more active. I find my connection to the Dhamma has been slipping a bit for the lack of Dhamma friends here in Japan (I'm not into Mahayana) so here I am. My emphasis is on sila. As a busy lay follower with lots of work and home responsibilities I think that is a full platter. The householder's greatest happiness is blamelessness I read in a sutta. I really think the Dhamma starts and ends with harmlessness. (ahimsa? or is that the yoga spelling?)

Anyway, thanks.

Welcome back!

:anjali:
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.

Welcome back!

I believe in Pali it is usually spelled as avihiṃsā but ahimsa is also used.

Japan is great. I want to go to a maid cafe in akhihabara, only once though. I'm not a big fan of akb48.

Anyways:

Here is a theravada temple in Tokyo:
