I'm a young man from the UK currently living in mid Wales, and I have joined this forum for the purpose of asking a few questions and learning more about Theravada Buddhism. My questions are quite basic although I don't think they are covered in any of the introductory materials I have read. I hope my stay here is productive.
I'm not a practicing Buddhist and I don't live near any centers or temples as far as I know, but it is a philosophy that is interesting to me and makes a lot of sense on some levels.
"If beings knew, as I know, the results of giving & sharing, they would not eat without having given, nor would the stain of miserliness overcome their minds. Even if it were their last bite, their last mouthful, they would not eat without having shared."
