Aloha from Cali

Post by KealaKC » Sun Feb 17, 2013 11:06 pm

Hi, My name is Keala and I'm in rural northern California. I've been privately practicing more on the line of Theravada Buddhism for about a decade now. I have never joined with other Buddhists, since there are none I know of in this area. I have much to learn, and have been absorbing as much information online as I can :)

Welcome Keala!

: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.

- 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

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