Welcome DhammaApprentice!

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk

Thank you all for the kind greetings. Thank you to Cloud as well, for the inquiry. While I have studied the variety in philosophy and religion casually all my life, I have felt pulled towards Buddhist teachings, specifically following the Dalai Lama, in the past couple years. I feel more peace and truth in his words than any other. I am in the process of formulating a new non-profit organization to bring the essence of compassionate living to all humanity, without regard to any particular differentiator. It is my hope that this will lead to a more peaceful and cooperative local & global society that can embrace the coexistance of the variety inherent within. I welcome any advice, ideas or (constructive) criticism. Let me know if there is anything in particular that any of you feel would be of importance to such a concept, as well as if anyone would like assisstance with anything. I live to serve; through service I find salvation.
