Hello everyone

Postby Alobha » Mon Dec 19, 2011 8:53 pm

Hello everyone,

just wanted to drop a few lines as i just joined the forum.

About me: one might say i'm struggling with the dhamma for a few years now. (about 7 to be exact.) Living the dhamma is not always easy for me in a laylife full of habits and distractions but i do my best. Destroying the kilesas is a tough task and i feel like the laylife is especially vulnerable to set-backs - but upon recalling, i never regretted any choice that was in accorance with the dhamma. In fact, whenever i act in accordance with dhamma i can very often see the good results.

So... i hope this can be something like an E-Sangha for me, because there is no Sangha in my city. I enjoy daily puja at home and i really feel that Buddha Dhamma Sangha are the secure, the highest refuge for all beeings :-)

Oh. I also enjoy writing poems and reading the suttas.

Cya
Alobha

P.S.: My nickname is ofcourse not my current state, but the state i'm working towards :)

Welcome Alobha!

: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.

Greetings Alobha 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
