Grüß dich Dave ...

By understanding everything you perceive from the perspective of the view, you are freed from the constraints of philosophical beliefs.
By understanding that any and all mental activity is meditation, you are freed from arbitrary divisions between formal sessions and postmeditation activity.

these are encouraging warm welcome greetings,
thanks a lot!
Some of you I know from E-Sangha, Laura, Retrofuturist, Sonam and many more I do know from previous times, with Henry I kept in touch also after E-Sangha.
Lets see how things can develop in DhARMA-WHEEL for the benefit of some more people.

Some new info from my side, I changed my home since date of June the first.
Right now I inhabit a lofty, light, fresh renovated flat in Germany Ruhrgebiet. By the way, affordable rental fee. The town I was moving, (is)was the first town in Germany visited by the 16th Karmapa and he performed the black crown ceremony. This town I made first time contact with the Buddha Dharma by visiting my first Dharma center.
The reason for changing house, signs and dreams indicate me that I can do something beneficial for the Dharma and for people in this new area. Also I was in need to change house for private reasons, job and for some more reasons I will not disclose here.
In my new home in the night of the vesakh holiday, (Buddhas birthday, enlightment, and paranirvana)
I had a very auspicious dream.
So I look forward I can do something beneficial in the town and in this area.
And maybe also in Dharma Wheel.

With warm greetings to all of you. Dave

Welcome Dave!

I can relate to your situation because I'm moving soon, too. I'm moving from a sleazy medium-sized city to a cute small city in the country which is only half an hour from my sangha's retreat center. I plan to do several retreats this summer and to help my sangha set up for special events. I probably won't post here for a while because I'll be so busy.

Have a nice summer everybody,

Hi there! Good to see you! :applause:

Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."

Yo, Lama Dave...I came in after ya, but I'll reply to you anyway! Nice to see ya!


"Absolute Truth is not an object of analytical discourse or great discriminating wisdom,
It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."
- (Kyabje Bokar Rinpoche, from his summary of "The Ocean of Definitive Meaning")
