Greetings from Brazil

Postby rteixeirapl » Sat Jun 18, 2011 12:59 am

Friends,
I'm very happy to find this community on the internet. First of all, I'd like to apologize for any erros in my english, because I'm actually brazilian and doesn't have much confidence in my typing quality. So, please, bypass my linguistic faults :thinking:

Anyway, I've been studying and practicing for about 3 years here in my town, Belo Horizonte. Unfortunatelly, we don't have many options of groups to study the Dhamma, but there are a few people interested that I try to make contact. Also, there are not so many titles available in portuguese. About 90% of them is introductory studies or what-is-buddhism manuals. Most of my books are, because of that, purchased in Amazon.com or WisdomPubs.org. The real problem is that, because of the shipping, I always pay double the prices. :cry:

I don't wanna take your time anymore. It's a real gift to have you friends by the internet.
Please, let me know if some of you need something from this part of the world!

Metta,
Rafael

Hi Rafael and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

My own tradition has meditation centres in Brazil

and should have introductory material in Portuguese.

I hope that is of benefit to you.
If not, please disregard.
kind regards

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Welcome Rafeal!

: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

Olá Rafael. Bem-vindo :smile:

Um abraço de Portugal.
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)
