Hello There!!!

Postby Aces&Eights » Sun Oct 31, 2010 7:39 pm

I am Thai and I live in America. Recently, I went to A. Sucitto and A. Metta retreat at Spirit Rock. I am a big fan of A. Sucitto, A. Amaro, A. Pasano and A. Sumedho. This Dhamma Wheel web site looks interesting. I am working on patience and letting go. :juggling:

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

Hi, bodom and Ytrog. I appreciate your greeting and welcome me to this site. I am glad to hear that bodom likes A. Pasano's teaching too. Thank for sending me ABM's web site. I also check out this site very regulary. The same goes for Cittaviveka.

Ytrog, what an usual nick name! I am very doubtful about your unskillful speech and action. But, I will keep it in mind for just in case.

I don't know if my response will reach you both. I am not yet familiar with this site. I am testing it right now.

Cheers.

Hi Aces&Eights
Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
kind regards

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Hi Ben and Cooran

It is very nice to receive many warm greetings when you first join the site. So far, I like everybody favorite sayings at the end of the post. I think I will try to find one for myself. The picture of Ben's wheel turning the wheel of truth is so cool.

P.S The Giants won the world series just now. They haven't done since I was four.
