Minnesota USA

Post by 3ball » Thu Nov 22, 2012 5:08 pm

I'm a Buddhist out of Minnesota USA. I study with Bhante Sati at Triple Gem in Mankato, but my center is the Northfield Buddhist Meditation Center. I have a Buddhist blog at simple sutras.wordpress.com. I'm also a composer. You can hear some of my music at http://www.mooneast.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;. Glad to be here!

Welcome 3ball!

: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.

- Ud 3.5


"Dont send the mind outside. Watch the mind right at the mind."

Greetings and welcome!
“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
