Many thanks Spiny

Kindest wishes, Dave
Everyday problems teach us to have a realistic attitude.
They teach us that life is what life is; flawed.
Yet with tremendous potential for joy and fulfillment.
~Lama Surya Das~

If your path teaches you to act and exert yourself correctly and leads to spiritual realizations such as love, compassion and wisdom then obviously it's worthwhile.
~Lama Thubten Yeshe~

One whose mind is freed does not argue with anyone, he does not dispute with anyone. He makes use of the conventional terms of the world without clinging to them

Huifeng, my apologies for 1) the misspelling of Sangha 2) for using it in an improper way.

My understanding, which is very limited, was that I was asking about joining a temple/traditions group and being part of that temples community.
No disrespect was meant.


Kindest wishes, Dave


Dave, :smile:

No need to apologize, spelling mistakes usually don't amount to evil karma! :tongue:

Technically speaking, even "sangha" is a spelling mistake, as it should be "Saṅgha" or "Saṃgha", the three letters “n”, “ṅ” and “ṃ” being distinct and different in Sanskrit or Pali.
