Hello! I am back

Dear Buddhists,

My screenname is Dharmasherab. I was born Theravada Buddhist but recently I entered Vajrayana Buddhism. However I still maintain my Theravada practice and continue to learn Theravada like I have always done.

I hope to read important threads in Dhamma Wheel forum and get directions from there. In addition to my continued learning in Theravada I am particularly interested in the Bodhisattva path within Theravada Buddhism and will be happy if people can direct me towards such threads/posts.

With Metta,
Dharmasherab

The Bodhisatta path of Theravada Buddhism to become a future samma-sam-buddha? That's quite an ambitious endeavor!

Welcome to DW. The path in Theravada is that of the arahant. More about it here:

Hello Dharmasherab :hello:

I used to practice Vajrayana before changing to Theravada.

The late Ajahn Chah said :

‘Don’t be an arahant, don’t be a bodhisattva, don’t be anything at all – if you are anything at all you will suffer’
