Greetings from Australia

Postby Melstro » Wed Jan 19, 2011 3:47 pm

Hello everyone,

I have recently been listening to a few different talks by Pema Chodron. Upon searching this forum, I have found no links or even references to her. Why is this? I have studied Buddhism at school, but am now learning there is so much that I don't yet know. I have found Pema's tactics of identifying Shenpa within myself (I know there is a term for this but I cannot recall it)really beneficial. I have also used this tactic whilst meditating. By doing this I have found that I am able to break old, bad and negative habits.

I am hoping this forum will enable me to grow spiritually and in wisdom.

Cheers
Melstro

Welcome Melstro.

Pema Chodron is a Tibetan Buddhist which is part of the Vajrayana tradition. Dhamma Wheel is a forum dedicated to the Theravadan Buddhist tradition.

For more information on Pema Chodron and the Mahayana and Vajrayana traditions please see Dhamma Wheels sister site Dharma Wheel:

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