Hello!

Postby OgyenChodzom » Wed Dec 09, 2009 7:41 am

I found my way here from freesangha.com. I'm a Nyingma student, but I've just started studying the suttas and a little Abhidhamma and have a very deep interest in the Theravada school. I will be reading.

If you were on e-sangha, I was Syzygy. I've seen some familiar member names here. Drop a line, say hi!

Hello OgyenChodzom

Welcome to DW :)
"For a disciple who has conviction in the Teacher's message & lives to penetrate it, what accords with the Dhamma is this:
'The Blessed One is the Teacher, I am a disciple. He is the one who knows, not I." -

“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.

OgyenChodzom! You are everywhere! It is good to see you here.
"As I am, so are others;
as others are, so am I."
Having thus identified self and others,
harm no one nor have them harmed.

Welcome!

: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.
