Hi guys!

Post by Javi » Thu Nov 22, 2012 5:49 pm

Greetings from Miami! Joined the board because all my google searches kept leading back this website and found myself reading many highly informative threads. Currently reading In the Buddha's words by Bodhi and loving it, also listening to his course on the MN. Looking forward to many future dhamma discussions!

Self-taught poverty is a help toward philosophy, for the things which philosophy attempts to teach by reasoning, poverty forces us to practice. — Diogenes of Sinope

I have seen all things that are done under the sun, and behold, all is vanity and a chase after wind — Ecclesiastes 1.14

Welcome Javi!

: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.

Welcome Javi! In the Buddha's words by Bhikkhu Bodhi is my current book, too! It's one of the books that is recommend here regulary, so you're in good company! As for the courses on the MN - I heard it's good to listen to those while studying the translation of the MN (which will probably be my next big book :D)

Best wishes,
Alobha
