I've been practicing Therevada Buddhism for a little over two years, but have not had the experience of being apart of an active sangha due to where I live. I'm twenty years old and actively study, and enjoy discussing, suttas and things I have read within the Pali Canon. Glad to be here.

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.

With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
