Introduction

Post by unveiledartist » Thu Dec 21, 2017 6:51 pm

Im glad I found this forum. I took refuge in Vietnamese Zen but I practice the Kadampa tradition since thats the only temple in my area. I look forward to speaking with Dharma practitioners and studying the Dharma as well.

Thank you. Exploring the features. I like the set up and all the options, topics, etc. The icons are cute.

Nice. Thank you. I've been going back and forth. We have a Theravada monastery I want to go to the retreat at about two hours from me sometime next year. The other temple is Theravada. The one I took refuge, everyone only speaks Vietnamese. I was lucky to have a translator. So, I'm in between. I know more Theravada though, weirdly enough. Most likely I stay on here, but that's cool you got two forums.

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.

- 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
