Hi, Dhamma Wheel

Postby Brian_type » Sat Oct 13, 2012 9:32 pm

Hi, All,

My name is Brian, and I live in the state of Maryland, USA. I've been calling myself a Buddhist for about 8 years, and have benefited immensely from the practice. My reason for joining Dhamma Wheel is to make Buddhist friends, as I currently have none that are Buddhists, and so have no one to talk to about the dhamma. I look forward to reading about all of your experiences, and hopefully will make some positive contributions myself.

Enjoy your day!

Thanks,
-Brian

Welcome Brian!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

Welcome Brian!

: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
