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!
世尊在靈山會上拈華示眾眾皆默然唯迦葉破顏微笑世尊云
The Lord dwelt at the Vulture Peak with the assembly and plucked a flower as a teaching. The myriad totality were silent, save for Kāśyapa, whose face cracked in a faint smile. The Lord spoke.
吾有正法眼藏涅槃妙心實相無相微妙法門不立文字教外別傳付囑摩訶迦葉。
I have the treasure of the true dharma eye, I have nirvāṇa as wondrous citta, I know signless dharmatā, the subtle dharma-gate, which is not standing on written word, which is external to scriptures, which is a special dispensation, which is entrusted to Mahākāśyapa.
