Hi, there!

Post by Perhin » Mon Dec 17, 2012 6:04 pm

Hi, everyone! This is Perhin from Alabama, USA, and I'm a newbie to Buddhism. I chose this path because it seemed to make the most sense to me and because of what now seems selfish(enlightenment over being a Bodhisattva), but either way, it does make me feel...like, I guess, I'm in control of myself. I like that very much. :)

Anyway, I cannot wait to begin talking to you all and to make friends, oh, and to learn! :D

*hugs*

-Perhin

Welcome!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

Welcome perhin!

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
