Hello from Perth, Australia

Postby Walst » Sat Mar 26, 2011 6:20 am

My experience with Buddhism is mainly from :reading: and listening to the to odd podcast as of late last year. In that short time I've learnt a fair bit but naturally it's early days.

Looking forward to participating in the forum and meeting others on here.

Greetings Walst 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 Walst!

: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
