"No Matter How Far Along You Go, You Can Always Turn Around"

Postby solomon » Thu Jan 09, 2014 4:25 am

New to Dharma Wheel, not new to Buddhism, but, always new to Buddhism.


I practice, study, practice some more, Zen Buddhism. It is a gift to be able to actively participate with the Dharma on both a pragmatic personal level of practice and a studious level at college. I am a college student at Marlboro College in Marlboro VT. It's tiny, google it. Great community, great learning. I am looking forward to being here, engaging, forgetting about it for a while, engaging again. It is so important to be stimulated with teachings on different levels, and I think Dharma Wheel will afford an opportunity for one aspect of practice.

Hi solomon, nice to meet you and welcome :smile:

When there is no one to provoke anger, how shall we practice patience?

Hello and welcome. :hi:
We follow a spiritual path because we want to defeat our emotions and attain enlightenment, and to achieve that goal we need discipline, guidance and the courage to confront everything we have spent many lifetimes trying to avoid.
