Hello! I am back

Post by Dharmasherab » Mon Nov 13, 2017 7:31 pm

Dear Buddhists,

My screenname is Dharmasherab. I was born Theravada Buddhist but recently I entered Vajrayana Buddhism. However I still maintain my Theravada practice and continue to learn Theravada like I have always done.

I hope to read important threads in Dhamma Wheel forum and get directions from there. In addition to my continued learning in Theravada I am particularly interested in the Bodhisattva path within Theravada Buddhism and will be happy if people can direct me towards such threads/posts.

With Metta,
Dharmasherab

The Bodhisatta path of Theravada Buddhism to become a future samma-sam-buddha? That's quite an ambitious endeavor!

Welcome to DW. The path in Theravada is that of the arahant. More about it here:

Hello Dharmasherab :hello:

I used to practice Vajrayana before changing to Theravada.

The late Ajahn Chah said :

‘Don’t be an arahant, don’t be a bodhisattva, don’t be anything at all – if you are anything at all you will suffer’

Welcome back!

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.
