Ciao Vincenzi. It may be better if we try to write in English rather than Italian as the majority of folks here only speak English. Forse sarebbe meglio se parlassimo in inglese dato che sono pochi chi capiscono l'italiano.

Welcome Vincenzi!

: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

That is a hard question to answer sensibly, because Nepal is mostly Hindu and the Buddhist minority is mostly Mahayana-Vajrayana. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion_in_Nepal and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddhism_in_Nepal.

This might help.
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
- Lokavipatti Sutta
