Hey I'm Lucas

Post by Stutters » Tue Jul 31, 2018 7:52 pm

Hi :namaste:

My name's Lucas, I've been practicing secular Buddhism for almost 6 years now. I struggled with addiction at the time and I can confidently say that the Dhamma changed my life for the better. I've read other people bios, and you guys accomplished a lot for sure. Personally, I'm a warehouse worker, nothing special. I've been trying to find a sangha lately, Wich is not easy where I live. Religion, even secular in essence, is not rly openly discussed here. So I hope this virtual sangha can fill this role in my life.

Thank you for welcoming me !

Welcome Lucas!

Obstacles are always nice training objects in life You never know what that experience with addiction was/is/will be good for

Ho! All the possible appearances and existences of samsara and nirvana have the same source, yet two paths and two results arise as the magical display of awareness and unawareness.

Yeah, going through addiction, in a way, helped me understand a lot about me and cravings in general.

I just got a job at a warehouse too!
नस्वातो नापिपरतो नद्वाभ्यां नाप्यहेतुतः उत्पन्ना जातु विद्यन्ते भावाः क्वचन केचन
There absolutely are no things, nowhere and none, that arise anew, neither out of themselves, nor out of non-self, nor out of both, nor at random.
सर्वं तथ्यं न वा तथ्यं तथ्यं चातथ्यम् एव च नैवातथ्यं नैव तथ्यम् एतद् बुद्धानुशासनम्
All is so, or all is not so, both so and not so, neither so nor not so. This is the Buddha's teaching.

一切實非實亦實亦非實
非實非非實是名諸佛法
