Greetings from China

Post by willp » Sun Feb 14, 2010 3:47 am

Hi Friends. Greetings from beautiful Zhejiang Province, China where I Iive with my wonderful wife and son.
I've been attracted to the Buddha Dhamma for many years but really come unstuck on rebirth. Hoping the accumulated wisdom on this lovely site will help. Look forward to communicating with you.

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Hi & welcome to Dhamma Wheel
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
John Stuart Mill

Welcome!
