Hi. It's me.

Postby TaraJo » Fri Apr 23, 2010 3:00 pm

Hi, I guess I'm the newest newbie. I'm TaraJo.

I just recently started getting into Buddhism for multiple reasons. I've always found Eastern spiritual beliefs interesting and I've wanted to learn more. Then about the same time I started doing a form of therapy that is based on Buddhism I started dating a Buddhist (she actually referred me here). I'm still kinda a newbie, but I will say that I've been able to get some much needed calmness into my life and want to try to integrate more Buddhist philosophy into my every day life.

Anything else you want to learn about me?

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Welcome TaraJo!

: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.

I have a big hungry mind seeking input, practicing buddhism for many years and looking forward to mix with like minded people :group:
ps. To be at peace and truly happy, I find that honoring what is (versus complaining, controlling or resisting) is key. :namaste:
