Hello from Serbia

Post by shagrath » Fri Oct 05, 2018 9:40 am

Hi everybody,

I am coming from Serbia. I grew up in orthodox christian family. Even though I have interests in christianity as a whole, especially early christianity and direct experience with gnostic version of it and hesychasm, my interest for buddhism go really deep. Several years ago I have started with theravada and vipassana, then two years ago I shifted towards soto zen in which I fell in love with. Although I still love zen and go to sesshins, I wish to explore more of mahamudra and dzogchen.

Recently I looked online about dzogchen and stumbled upon this wonderful forum.

Happy to be here.

Your post sounds very familiar indeed. I was initially drawn to the Quakers and the Desert Fathers. I wanted to see and know things first-hand.
And now here I am, some years later :smile:

I hope you enjoy your time on DharmaWheel.

"If sentient beings are touched by His radiance, their three afflictions will be eliminated and their bodies and minds will become gentle. They will be filled with joy and exuberance as benevolence arises in their minds. If those who are in extreme suffering, taking any of the three evil life-journeys, see this radiance, they can rest, no more pain or distress. After their death, they will be saved." -- Sutra of Amitāyus Buddha
