Hello!

Post by Carlossal » Mon Feb 18, 2013 1:14 pm

Hello everyone.

Obviously I am new here so I thought that I'd introduce myself. My name is Carl, I'm 28 and have been reading about Buddhism for about 2 years now. I've also been practicing meditation daily for about the same amount of time. I'm new to Buddhism and am eager to learn all about it.

Hope to talk to you soon!

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

Welcome Carl!

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.

Thanks for the very warm welcome.

I'm not really up on forums so I'll probably be a bit slow on the uptake. :D
