Hi from Melbourne - Oz

Postby Middleway » Sat Mar 12, 2011 3:38 pm

Hi

I have been sent here from the Mahayana forum http://www.dharmawheel.net as they think that this is more up my ally as theravada is less ritualistic and more western than Mahayana ??"
I don't know, I am still pretty confused :)
Anyway, hi

Welcome Middleway!

: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.

- Ud 3.5

Greetings middleway and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
“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

Welcome, Middleway :hello:
I'm from Melbourne, too, in a way - lived there until deciding to head North, quite a few years ago.
Still visit from time to time, for family and friends and bookshops and restaurants :smile:
