Greetings from Bangkok

Post by Dennie » Wed Aug 01, 2012 3:12 pm

Hello:
Just found this forum and I am looking forward to being a contributing member.
I am on holiday in Bangkok (have been here for almost 3 weeks). I flew here from Baghdad, Iraq where I work but Texas is home.
I have been interested in Buddhism for many years but my holiday here and meeting some phenomenal people has deepened my desire to know more about and practice the belief.
Today I went to a meditation class and received so much peace and knowledge and it has only whetted my desire to learn more.
Thank you for allowing me to share your place and hope to learn more from the knowledgeable individuals that call this home.
Peace and Love :anjali:

Welcome Dennie!

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