Hello there :namaste:

Some of you may remember me as Caz from other places Ive recently purchased a few books on The Theravadin Sutta's such as In the Buddha's words by Bhikkhu Bodhi and the Vissudhimagga, Ive always enjoyed reading the first turning teachings and hope to gain some further context and appreciation of them here in order to expand my knowledge of Buddhadharma :) :namaste:

Welcome Zach!

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 Aboard!
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

Greetings Caz,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.


Of the two books you've purchased, definitely start with In The Buddha's Words.
