Hi from Gold Coast, Australia

Post by Noël » Fri Aug 25, 2017 1:09 am

It's taken a long time to reach here :buddha1: and after reading the rules :rules: I feel that it would be wise :sage: for me to say less :| and listen up :reading: because I feel I'm in for a huge learning curve :geek: and I don't want to blow it by being obnoxious :evil:

"highly objectionable or offensive; odious: obnoxious behavior, annoying or objectionable due to being a showoff or attracting undue attention to oneself: an obnoxious little brat." Archaic. exposed or liable to harm evil, or anything objectionable. Obsolete. liable to punishment or censure; reprehensible."
http://www.dictionary.com/browse/obnoxious

Synonyms for obnoxious
http://www.thesaurus.com/browse/obnoxious
The synonyms for obnoxious are all the things that a good Buddhist doesn't want to be that sometimes can manifest and hopefully the lesser the better until we have the life condition of Buddha/ enlightened one, a knower as our dominant state of mind in our lives and heal the world of suffering minds but in the mean time those of us like myself who aren't there yet can share from the glimpses of eternal enlightenment that we have experienced and that the Buddha teaches throughout the sutras

I'm an independent practitioner of Nichiren Buddhism who has had past experiences with various Tantric, Vedantic and Buddhist schools and looking forward to having and sharing deeper awareness through discussion

I feel that it would be wise :sage: for me to say less :| Hopefully this is not too much too soon... Tcare

Somehow I suspect you'll fit in just fine.

Welcome.
