Sawadee Krap!

Postby Sasana » Sun Nov 21, 2010 5:29 am

Hello friends,
I would just like to introduce myself, My name is Adam! Hi!

I have had a keen interest in the "teachings of the elders" for a fair few years now and thought it would be great to meet others!

I'm Australian, But have been living overseas for 2 years (i've just recently returned.)

I have been staying in England, Scotland and Thailand for the last 2 years and have learned so much (especially traveling through Thailand.)

I hope everyone is well!

With Metta,

Adam

Welcome Adam!

: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.

Greetings Adam!
Melbourne's not a bad place to hang out between trips to Thailand! There are few Melbournites on this board.
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.
