Hello, people

Post by LostSun » Sun Jun 24, 2018 6:56 pm

Hi, everyone,

I've always enjoyed the buddhist doctrine and have read a book or two about it, but I realized that I still have pontual doubts over some aspects of the philosophy. I thought that entering a forum would be a good way to answer these questions that's been revolving around my head, with the kind of cooperation that only internet can bring us. Moreover, since there isn't a buddhist community near where I live (São Paulo, Brazil), I think this might be the closest thing to Sangha that I can experience nowadays.

Nice to meet you all.

Olá :hi:
There isn't a buddhist community in São Paulo? A quick google search comes up with many...
Then, the Licchavi Vimalakīrti spoke to the elder Śāriputra and the great disciples: “Reverends, eat of the food of the Tathāgata! It is ambrosia perfumed by the great compassion. But do not fix your minds in narrow-minded attitudes, lest you be unable to receive its gift.”

- Chapter 9, The Feast Brought by the Emanated Incarnation
The Noble Mahāyāna Sūtra “The Teaching of Vimalakīrti”

Welcome,

to find the Buddhist centres in Sao Paulo, try using the World Buddhist Directory at the Buddhanet website:

Leave the polluted water of conceptual thoughts in its natural clarity. Without affirming or denying appearances, leave them as they are. When there is neither acceptance nor rejection, mind is liberated into mahāmudra.
