Greetings from the Netherlands

Post by Maarten » Wed Sep 05, 2012 9:05 pm

Hello everyone,

I am Maarten from the Netherlands. I hope to learn a lot here and perhaps make some friends as there is no sangha where I live.

Metta to all!

Welcome Maarten!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

Welcome Maarten!

:anjali:
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.
