Hello everyone,
My name is Saurav an I am from Denver. I hope to learn new things from Buddha's teachings. I also am wanting to interact with others and hear their opinions about the Blessed One's teaching.

Welcome Saurav!

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

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

I lived in Denver 1991-1998. Beautiful place, more sunshine than Miami or San Diego.
