Hi from Pennsylvania, USA

Postby purplemaureen » Tue Sep 28, 2010 7:15 am

Hi I have been a Theravada Buddhist for years. I was limited to the books I could read and then the internet came around and I found a treasure trove of information, (some good , some bad) then lucky me I had a Theravada temple open about 2 hours away. I do go to the temple on most of their monthly programs but would still like a place to discuss topics and get more information from others who are practicing as I am every day. Thanks Maureen

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

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

well established, restrained

always centered, the monk
