Hello from Australia

Post by Upeksha » Fri Feb 23, 2018 1:24 am

Hello -

I've been off internet forums, social media and so forth for a number of years - in lieu of having a baby daughter and trying to reduce discursive thought - but am returning gently.

I am more familiar with the Sanskrit Buddhist traditions, but I have a deep love for the Pali canon and huge respect for the Theravada traditions. Hope to have some good dharmic conversations here.....

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
