Hi all,
just thought I'd introduce myself here. Have been reading about Buddhism on and off for a few years and decided its time to stop sitting on the fence!!

Dharma is an ocean... jump in!

Welcome.
Those who, even with distracted minds,
Entered a stupa compound
And chanted but once, “Namo Buddhaya!”
Have certainly attained the path of the buddhas.

-Lotus Sutra, Expedient Means Chapter

There are beings with little dust in their eyes who are falling away because they do not hear the Dhamma. There will be those who will understand the Dhamma.

Welcome :)

Hope you find some good advice here and get a proper guidance offline.

Welcome! One of my favorite things about Dharma Wheel is how you can explore most of the major schools of Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism just by browsing any of the subforums. There's always something interesting to read.

Welcome. My advise for what its worth is to find a qualified teacher and not rely on forums.There are many misleading answers on forums and so you have to sift through posts.Good luck.

Welcome, Kathal :hi:

I have never found the site search function to be very satisfactory although "search within these results" option can make it better. There's an "Advanced Search", too - search.php.

I usually use a site-specific search in my browser, i.e. searching for
site:https://dharmawheel.net search-term
where search-term is what you're looking for.
Since the forum has been going for so long, there will be huge numbers of results for most common terms. Google Advanced Search lets you restrict results by date, and that can be handy, too.

Hello!
Wish you all to have a great wonderful day and getting a step closer where you going to.
My journey into mindfulness does require some proper reading which I am going to find here.
Also, like hearing from wise people their stories - that's how theory turns into acts.
Thanks for accepting into the forum.
:)

This is a really great hint!
