Hello from Montréal

Postby Librarian » Wed Dec 28, 2011 6:29 pm

I read this forum for a few month now and I decided to register. I’d like the discussions and the answers provided by the members. There a lot of interesting topics.

More personaly, I’m practicing vipassana meditation (Goenka) since almost 2 years now. I’m practicing at home but I’m looking for a place with Theravada emphasis… Now I found one online I'm also interested in physical one.

Please apologize, there a lot of « I » but it’s for introduction purpose! :-)

Welcome Librarian!

:namaste:
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

Greetings Librarian and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
