Hello everyone,

After some encouragement from a good friend who has been practicing for some years I have finally (since last September) started taking my practice seriously. I read constantly (Currently reading In the Buddha's Words and Why Buddhism is true), listen to a variety of Dharma talk podcasts, and semi-regularly attend a local Sangha when my busy father of 3 schedule allows it.

Anyhow I hope this will prove to be a friendly and valuable place to continue to learn.

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

Greetings Halden,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

If you ever wish to discuss something you come across during your readings, by all means initiate a new topic, and you'll be sure to get an array of different perspectives in return!

Is there a particular forum in which to post questions/thoughts on readings?

Not specifically. Just pick the section that looks most relevant to the subject matter of your question. :)

Hello. Welcome. :hello:

I have read In Buddha's Words too, as my first book about Buddhism, it's a good compilation of suttas with introductions, elaborations by Bhikkhu Bodhi.

Much success with your learning!
