Hello,

I am a 23 year old Soto Zen practitioner, but prior to that I practiced in the Thai Forest Tradition as transmitted through Ajahns Sao, Mun, Lee, Fuang, and Thanissaro for several years. Though I have taken different vows, I do still have great respect for the Elder Path, and feel that, in many respects the two disciplines can be mutually supportive (please don't flame me for it!)

I'm glad to be here to learn from and discuss Dhamma with you all.

Metta and Gassho (Anjali),

Saijun

Welcome Saijun!

: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

Hi Saijun 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
