Gabrielbranbury in Now Prasadachitta

Postby Prasadachitta » Sat Aug 06, 2011 3:02 pm

Hi Friends,

I thought I should post this here as it is a kind of introduction.

I was Gabrielbranbury.

My new name is Prasadachitta.

I was given it when my Going for Refuge was ceremonially recognized as being effective by others whom I hold in high regard within my practice community.

Thanks everyone for practicing Dhamma.

Great name! What does it mean?

: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.

Nice name! It sounds Sanskrit to my ears though, is it?

Why do I get the impression you're avoiding mentioning who your practice community is? Is that a sensitive issue? Would you recommend such an ordination to others?

Greetings Prasadachitta,

I'm sure I'm not the only one who would be interested to know what this means to your practice in terms of structure... for example, is there a set of precepts (either negatively or positively framed) that you abide by etc.?

In other words, how are the structures you've taken on differentiated from that of a non-ordained Triratna Buddhist, and how are they differentiated from that of a lay or ordained Theravada practitioner?

Metta,
Retro. :)

Sadhus and good for you Prasadachitta.
Two of the most dedicated and quietly impressive Buddhists I know belong to the Triratna Community.
