Hello and it is nice to meet you

Post by jwaid » Tue Oct 30, 2012 5:55 am

I am Julie. I am very new to studying Buddhism. I recently started when I was asked to research the Buddhist tradition for a World Religions class and was very surprised to find that a lot of the beliefs and principles resonated with me. I am curious to learn more anywhere I can. I am also writing a report with an interview for my class so I would love to meet members willing to do an email interview about their faith!

Hi Julie and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Welcome Julie!

: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.
