Just a little introduction about myself.. I am a 73 year old very active and spiritually vibrant individual who discovered Shambhalla Buddhism going on 5 years ago.. It is the latest stopping point in my spiritual journey of over 55 years. That included about everything I could be part of ..But the center of Buddhism I found was just what I found here in Love Is The Answer.. ie,, unconditional love and compassion is the way to enlightenment, which is what Buddha means,, enlightenment and awakenment.
I took the Bodhisattva Vows last spring in which I made the commitment to place the love and compassion of others ahead of my self. And in so doing I find that the Dharma tells me do all for others but to do so have no neglect of compassion for self as well. For if I do not care for myself, in an unselfish way,, I cannot care for other at all.
When I took my vows,, I was given the name Chi-me Jinpa, which means Deathless Generosity and also Unquenchable Fire! And so here I am Chi-me!
Om Svasti,, Namaste. May all be well with you,, The ultimate good within me bows to the ultimate good within you!
Thank you for introducing yourself, Chi-me.
It is always a pleasure and delight to connect with another kindred spirit :-)
This network has so much wonderful content about Love that it would take anyone the rest of their life to read it all!
Steve and Teresa are our two most prolific authors - I suggest you check out their postings. Note there is a translator in the right column for Teresa's posts, which is in Polish, but absolutely essential reading.
We look forward to knowing you better and hope this family is the one you have been looking for!
Much Love from all of us here ♥♥♥
Thank you so much for the guidance and suggestions.. I will certainly make it a done job...
