Hello from Cincinnati

Post by markbeestrmentr » Mon May 30, 2011 12:22 am

Hello and peace and blessings to all. Looking forward to reading all the interesting posts.
I have been practicing daily for a few months and am learning every day! So many great resources (like this one!!) available to the humble upasaka such as myself.

Namaste;
Mark

Welcome Mark!

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

If you see any unskillful speech (or other action) from me let me know, so I can learn from it.

Greetings Mark and welcome back to Dhamma Wheel!
“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
