Greets from Denmark, from Hungary

Postby Almaril » Thu Jan 28, 2010 7:31 pm

Greets everyone!
I am Almaril, 21, I was born in Hungary, now I am currently staying in Denmark.
I have been interested in spirituality for a long time, and from time to time I have found myself closer and closer to Theravada Buddhism, now the more I learn about it the more I like it.
I am most interested in meditation, I have just started a 3 months online Theravada meditation course (vipassana.com) and planning to take a retreat sometime in early summer as well.
My goal is to become a better person, to be able to radiate compassion and peace instead of absorbing that. I have been facing my deep-rooted personal flaws on a daily basis for almost decades now, but couldn't really been able to make a real change through the years. I'm really glad I have found this community.

Peace and love and rock and roll :yingyang:

Almaril

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.

- Ud 3.5

Hi & welcome :anjali:


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Hi Almaril
Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
I hope you like it here.

- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

"To reach beyond fear and danger we must sharpen and widen our vision. We have to pierce through the deceptions that lull us into a comfortable complacency, to take a straight look down into the depths of our existence, without turning away uneasily or running after distractions." -- Bhikkhu Bodhi

"No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man." -- Heraclitus
