Hello

Postby Shonin » Wed May 05, 2010 9:26 am

Hi,

I've been practicing Zen and studying Buddhism of all sorts for a number of years now. I'm also training to be a MBCT teacher, which is based on Vipassana. I'm a keen student of early/Nikaya Buddhism and I think that a Theravada forum is a good place to learn and discuss.

Best wishes,
Shonin

Hi Shonin
Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.
kind regards

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Welcome Shonin!

: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.
