Hi there everybody,

My name is Mick and it is grat to be a member of this fine community.

A bit about my self. I am an Australian but am currently living in China working as a teacher. I have been practicing Buddhism for a while now. I tried both Therevada and Tibetan Buddhism but I found Therevada was much more to my taste. I am also planning on ordaining as a novice when I return Australia within the next twelve months. :woohoo:

Welcome Mick!

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk

Hey, Mick! Welcome to the forum.
