Hello To all

Post by cutest_buddhist » Mon Apr 09, 2012 9:51 pm

My name is Gabrielle. I am 20 years old, and currently residing by the beach in Virginia. I am here to discuss my love for buddhas, and learn a lot from others to help in my spiritual journey. I don't really label myself as a particular kind of buddhist. For example: Mahayana, or something like that. I asked some people on facebook, and some say I am a lot like vajrayana buddhist. I just spend a lot of time with meditation, prayers, and devotions to the many various buddhas. I do not follow any formalities, or go to a shrine. I feel like the buddhas (most of them tend to be tibetan, by the way. Examples : Green Tara, Avalokiteshvara, Amoghassidhi, Vajrasattva, etc) I get a lot of spiritual energy from the buddhas. :)

Anyway, I am trying to get better with my buddhism. Like meditate more. I just want to meet nice people, and discover myself more. I'm very friendly. You can talk to me anytime, I'm on most social networks. Talk to you soon!

Feel free to share anything, or ASK ME QUESTIONS :) I love talking.

Much Love from deep within my heart,
Gabrielle S.

Greetings Gabrielle and welcome to Dhamma Wheel.
I wish you all the very best with your efforts.
kind regards,

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Welcome Gabrielle!

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

Welcome Gabrielle! May you enjoy every success.
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.
