New Member Seeking Buddhist Fellowship

Post by nullcore » Sat Aug 18, 2018 1:50 am

Hi, I'm Dave. I'll make this short: I'm relatively new to Buddhism, but have been practicing mindfulness meditation off and on for several years. I live on the East Coast of the USA, in an area where there are no Buddhist temples or other informal Buddhist groups. I'm looking for general guidance, pointers to good books for beginners, etc. Also, making some new friends wouldn't hurt either.

I've read most of The Art of Happiness by the Dalai Lama, and excerpts from a few Thich Nhat Hanh books as well. Currently, I'm reading The Buddhist Handbook by John Snelling.

Thanks for taking the time to read my intro!

Hello :anjali:
16. 'In what has the world originated?' — so said the Yakkha Hemavata, — 'with what is the world intimate? by what is the world afflicted, after having grasped at what?' (167)

17. 'In six the world has originated, O Hemavata,' — so said Bhagavat, — 'with six it is intimate, by six the world is afflicted, after having grasped at six.' (168)

- Hemavatasutta
