Hello, friends!

Post by Kage » Fri Oct 05, 2012 1:41 am

I'm Kage in Virginia and I'm glad to know you. Is there anyone else here from the mid-Atlantic?

I have been a late-night occasional lurker and decided to step into the light. I think I had to renew at least once due to non-activity.

Not really a new agey kind of guy, but maybe like you, I am just another human being looking for inner peace in this great big world. 30s - my adult adolescence as AskMen puts it - single again. Yeah.

I've had a .pdf in my documents forever and will tackle tonight, "The Buddhic Essence" by Elizabeth Clare Prophet. Also dusting off a few others. Send any cool links my way, I will get to them! :juggling: Especially charts/graphics, ways to help bring ideas together...

My intent for this fall is to complete a long time goal, which is to visit a local temple which observes (if that is proper terminology) "Pure Land" form and sit-in, and LISTEN. This particular group has been in the press for problems related to "Zoning" of a religious place... without getting into it, the matter was resolved, but it really disturbed me that someone had to go and mess with these folks.

I recently completed my M.A. and within, a general Buddhism course which I considered particularly interesting. I leapt at the chance to add it to my degree program. Never have been particularly good at history, but this held my interest. The detail and revelations are fascinating.

Cheers, :toast: everyone. Thanks in advance for helping me reacquaint myself and drop a line anytime esp. if you're in the coastal area.

Welcome Kage! :group:

Hope to see more of you here - but, if you are interested in Pure Land then maybe our sister-site DharmaWheel would also be of interest to you, where it has its own sub-forum.

Welcome Kage!

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 to DW! May you find lasting happiness!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.
