It's been a while

I hope this message finds everyone well! It's been so long since I logged on here, I thought I may as well introduce myself all over again :)

For those who remember me, grad school is going well and I've recently started studying Sanskrit and Hindi (hope that doesn't make me forget my Pali).

I'm looking forward to getting involved in discussions again very soon!

Welcome back.

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 mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5

"Dont send the mind outside. Watch the mind right at the mind."

- Ajahn Dune Atulo

Welcome Back!
I believe One member here (kare) has said that sanskrit can aid in pali translating, well those are my words recollected from a thread.

but even if that is inaccurate I hope youfind these languages useful to understanding the path.
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
