Hey Everybody

Postby LazyOne » Sun Mar 25, 2012 3:34 pm


I am a Buddhist from a small Ohio town and joined to this forum to talk to more like minded poeple. It's unfortunate living in a small town where it seems as if you are the only Buddhist. I hope to get to know you all and engage in some interesting discussions.

Welcome LazyOne!

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

Hello, LazyOne! Nice to see another Ohioan; I'm from the Cincinnati area myself. :) Be well, and welcome, friend!

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)

What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)

Greetings Lazyone and welcome to Dhamma Wheel.
If its any consolation, many of our members live in places where there are no other Buddhists.
So it is fortunate that we have Dhamma Wheel.
kind regards,

“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
