Hello everyone

Post by MstChf » Wed Jan 04, 2012 2:51 am

I am interested in Buddhism but admit ignorance. I have read a few books and watched a few documentaries/movies about Buddha and Buddhism, but that's about it. I'm looking for some peace in my life (and on the internet).

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

Welcome MstChf!

: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.

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.

You are welcome here.
