New old guy

Postby Old Dude » Thu Oct 03, 2013 5:12 am

Retired and living in the mountains of Northern New Mexico with my wonderful wife, two cats, howling coyotes, garbage stealing bears and a neighbor who shoots off guns.
It's probably too late for me to become a bodhisattva in this existence, but its never too late to begin. :alien:

Welcome to Dharma Wheel!

A human being has his limits. And thus, in every conceivable way, with every possible means, he tries to make the teaching enter into his own limits. ChNN

It's never too late. I recommend you read the biography of the Mahasiddha Tantipa.

Welcome to the board!

You're living in one of the most beautiful places on this earth. There's a surprising amount of Dharma activity in New Mexico... the Zuni Mountain Stupa is probably not very near you, but in case it's accessible, check this out

Welcome, Old Dude!

I think that anybody who lives with bears is very cool! I love bears. :smile:

Good luck with your Buddhist path! :namaste:
