Hello

Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.

Hello

Postby Bj_whyto » Mon Feb 06, 2012 6:42 pm

I would like to say hallo to everyone. My name is Bart and I’m from Poland. Over the last few years I have been strongly inspired by Buddhism. There are not many Buddhist communities in Warsaw (or are far away from where I reside) so I have never actually met a Buddhist excluding young zen-potheads :D I hope we will learn from each other. I promise to find myself a cool avatar soon. In the end, feel free to correct my English :tongue:

Hi Bart and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

Your English is quite good, your avatar is lovely, and welcome. I hope the forum will be of value to you.

Hi Bart and welcome to Dhamma Wheel

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel Bart. :hello:
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 Bart!

: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
