"No Matter How Far Along You Go, You Can Always Turn Around"

Postby solomon » Thu Jan 09, 2014 4:25 am

New to Dharma Wheel, not new to Buddhism, but, always new to Buddhism.


I practice, study, practice some more, Zen Buddhism. It is a gift to be able to actively participate with the Dharma on both a pragmatic personal level of practice and a studious level at college. I am a college student at Marlboro College in Marlboro VT. It's tiny, google it. Great community, great learning. I am looking forward to being here, engaging, forgetting about it for a while, engaging again. It is so important to be stimulated with teachings on different levels, and I think Dharma Wheel will afford an opportunity for one aspect of practice.

Hi solomon, nice to meet you and welcome :smile:

When there is no one to provoke anger, how shall we practice patience?
