Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.

Hey Everybody

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

Greetings!

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!

: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

Greetings,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

Metta,

If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

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,

Ben
