Wowzers, got quite a few “followers” now. Feel like I should give something more than reblogged cat gifs and things.
Dont want to start just posting loads of Buddhist suttas and things because firstly, that evangelical attitude isnt really in keeping with the Dhamma, and secondly it isn’t really mine. I would be merely repeating thing wise people said.
Now there is certainly a value in this, dont get me wrong, (wisdom is beneficial to all) and im not saying that everyone who posts a quote etc is being evangelical and preaching but I think unless my Tumblr were explicitly for that purpose alone then people would know what they’d be following, they’d know the sole purpose of it, and my Tumblr isn’t. Im sure some people, like myself, follow things just for the “cat gifs”
So with this in mind I would like to suggest that if you’re interested in Buddhism and the sayings/teachings of the Buddha to check out Access To Insight (just Google it) All the writings of the Therevada tradition are avalible, plus there is a whole heap of articles and essays to aid you in understanding the principles of the Dhamma, and also to inform your reading of the Suttas by providing context.
Hope this helps :)
Peace and blessings.
May all beings be happy.
