...or buongiorno, depending where you are!
My name is Marta and I am a very confused beginner student of Buddhism.
I've read and heard a lot since re-discovering the Four Noble Truths last year after coming across them by chance about twenty years ago (and then forgetting about them all this time). Probably too much or in a too disconnected way, as now I seem to have quite a bit of "porridge" (as they say in Russia) in my head.
Snooping around this forum, I have found excellent guidance in the form of many great inputs, materials and ideas, for which I'd like to thank you all. :thanks:
And hopefully, one day, I'll also discover that I'm not "the only Theravada Buddhist in the village" and will meet Dhamma friends around here - or even a teacher!

When I'm not littering forum boards with exclamation marks/emoticons or listening to Dhamma talks, I (try to) teach high-school boys&girls, do yoga, crochet and cook.
Oh, and watch too much Monty Python.

With gratitude,

Welcome Marta!

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
