Hello Hello Hello!

Post by Paribbajaka » Fri Jun 01, 2012 1:24 am

Greetings everyone!

I have stalked around on these forums for about a year now and have decided it might be time to finally make an account.

I've been practicing Buddhism for a few years now, having begun with Korean Zen before settling in to Theravada. My primary teacher is a Laotian monk from the forest tradition.

I am looking forward to discussing the Dhamma with you all!


:anjali:
May all beings be happy!

Welcome Paribbajaka!

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