Tentative Hello...

Postby Beautiful Breath » Sun May 03, 2009 10:29 am

Hi all...

I have just joined this forum having had a dreadful experience at the hands of eSangha. Banned for merely asking a question about the Dalai Lama - not an inflammatory one I hasten to add. :cookoo:
I hope this forum will give me the opportunity to exercise some religious freedom and help me with my practice.

... so feel free to ask your HHDL-related questions there!

Metta,
Retro. :)

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel BBreath!
“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.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Hi


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Welcome my friend.

Things are peaceful here, hope it is to your liking.
