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:
This is our foundation: to have sati, recollection, and sampajañña, self-awareness, whether standing, walking, sitting, or reclining. Whatever arises, just leave it be, don't cling to it. Be it like or dislike, happiness or suffering, doubt or certainty... Don't try to label everything, just know it. See that all the things that arise in the mind are simply sensations. They are transient. They arise, exist and cease. That's all there is to them, they have no self or being, they are neither ''us'' nor ''them.'' They are not worthy of clinging to, any of them. - Ajahn Chah

Welcome!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

Greetings Librarian and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
