Hello From Mississippi

Postby PeaceintheMoment » Sat Jun 05, 2010 2:10 am

Hey guys. I've been a Buddhist for about two years just recently found this forum. I won't bore you with any life story or somesuch as that but just wanted to say hello.

Welcome PitM! I lived in Starkville and Tupelo at different periods in my life and still have family in Mississippi. I'd be interested to know if there are any Buddhist groups that have sprung up receently as I never encountered an in my years there. Be well!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

Welcome Peace!

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
can know Unbinding for himself.

Welcome to the forum!

Thanks, y'all. And there are two Buddhist groups that I know of. One meets in Jackson (where I live) and another meets in Starkville. No Theravada or even Vipassana centers though. But hey... at least the bookstore and library are well stocked!
