Welcome Gemma!

: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.

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.
