I'm 39 and been practicing Theravada Buddhism on and off [more off than on] for about twenty years or so, with a particular focus on the Forest Tradition & lineage of Ajahn Chah. I have been in lurk mode on this forum for a while, but have been learning from and enjoying the discussions. As I need help with my own practice, I thought it time to join up.


Peace, DD

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

Hi DD and welcome to DW!
“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
