Introduction

Greetings!
Just introducing myself. My name is Alvaro, I'm in Argentina. I found your site very interesting and, considering that there is very little buddhism here, and even less Theravada, i hope to find some good dhamma friends and some help here. Also to do my best to contribute.
With Metta,

Alvaro

I agree! Nice avatar!

:anjali:
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

Bienvenido a Dhamma Wheel Alvaro!!!

:anjali:
All the world is on fire, All the world is burning, All the world is ablaze, All the world is quaking. That which does not quake or blaze, That to which worldlings do not resort, Where there is no place for Mara:That is where my mind delights. (SN 5.7)

By degrees, little by little,
from moment to moment,
the wise purify themselves,
as a smith purifies silver.

Welcome aboard
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!
