Hi Everyone,

I've been a lurker. I post often at the DharmaWheel board, and I lead a Tendai Buddhist group in Washington, DC. I'm interested in... Buddhism, generally. I look forward to participating here.

all the best,

Welcome Jikan!

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."

- Ajahn Dune Atulo
