Joining this group is like jumping into a huge aquarium that contains many varieties of fish and other sea creatures (turtles, eels, crabs, etc.). The experience is exciting, but it may not help improve your understanding of the "Dhamma".

Good luck!

Welcome Sid! Joining this forum has greatly helped me to understand the theory and practice of Dhamma and im sure you will find it helps you as well.

:anjali:
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

@ dhamma_spoon
Who knows, I may stumble upon some hidden treasure in this aquarium. :smile:

@bodom
That is exactly what I'm looking for. It has happened several times that I couldn't understand a particular thing about the dhamma. Then from nowhere a situation may arise, or someone who may not even be familiar with dhamma would say something, that would suddenly make things clear. So one may never know when & where understanding may knock on one's head. And then a healthy discussion helps to consolidate the knowledge which one has already gained.

@OcTavO
Greetings to you too, my friend.

@retrofuturist
Yes, surely I'll.


Regards
-Sid
