Vitor, from Brazil

Post by Vitor_N » Fri Oct 12, 2018 12:20 pm

Hello fellow Dhamma Wheelers!

I'm Vitor, from Brazil. I am 27 years old and have been working on my graduate studies. I had some contact with Theravada Buddhism through dhamma talks and writings - mostly by Thanissaro Bhikkhu and Ajahn Chah - some years ago. I went through a very tough period in my life during which I stopped studying and meditating (ca. 3/4 years). My interest in Theravada Buddhism has regrown recently and since the city I live in does not have any buddhist communities nor groups as far as I know, I study and practice it by myself. I decided to look for a forum where I could share experiences, learn, and, hopefully, also help others, that's why I am here.

Metta,
:buddha1:

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
