Greetings from Swampflower

Postby swampflower » Wed Aug 25, 2010 9:22 pm

I am very happy to have found this site on the Dharma of the Mahayana and the Vajrayana.
I am a regular on FreeShanga and that is where I found information on this site.
My interests are primarily in the practice of Chod.

Hi swampflower! I'm sure you'll enjoy your time here! :namaste:
    How foolish you are,
    grasping the letter of the text and ignoring its intention!

Hello Swampflower! :hi:

Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget." –Arundhati Roy

Glad to see you here, and I really like your name. When we lived near the swamps in Florida, well very near. I used to walk my dog in them and look at the swamp flowers, actually the fly traps that were so pretty. But the swamp had poisonous snakes, allegators and fire ants. Not so good; not so wise to walk around.

So you picked a name that also reminded me of that.
