Hi,
My name is Srini and I am originally from India and living in San Jose, CA currently. I have a lot of interest in buddhism but have been on and off as far as the practice is concerned. Trying to do it better now.

Also want to let you all know that Thanissaro Bhikku will be doing lecture on Karma and Causality in the Bay Area on Sat April 30th. You can see http://www.sati.org for more details.

Thanks,
Srini.
Why do I, being subject myself to birth, seek what is likewise subject to birth? Being subject myself to aging... illness... death... sorrow... defilement, why do I seek what is likewise subject to illness... death... sorrow... defilement? What if I, being subject myself to birth, seeing the drawbacks of birth, were to seek the unborn, unexcelled rest from the yoke: Unbinding?

Welcome Srini and thanks for the heads up!

: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.

Welcome to the Dhamma Wheel Srini!
