Greetings

Post by seigan » Sat Aug 31, 2019 9:03 pm

This is my first post on this board. I've been lurking for quite some time and I've enjoyed many of the threads immensely.

I live in Seattle and practice at a Rinzai temple in the area. I'm reasonably fluent in spoken and written Japanese. Lately, I've been working on building my vocabulary such that I can understand texts and online writings (in modern Japanese) about Buddhism and Zen.

If it is of any interest to anyone, this is my study lexicon where I've been compiling the vocabulary that I've been learning while attempting to understand texts. What has been challenging is that I've had to go and learn many Pali terms and concepts that I was unfamiliar with in English.

It is a pleasure to virtually meet you all.

Gassho,
Seigan

Likewise, though it's hard for this brain to construct a virtual identity without an avatar :hatsoff:

Well whatever one believes is with the mind and thus of the mind, so the differences between this person and that persons believe is also mind made, so beliefs are not conducive to awakening for they merely limit one to a particular point in space/time. :cat:
