Hello from Pennsylvania USA

Postby BuddhasBuddy » Thu Nov 01, 2012 1:16 pm

Hi everyone,
Nice to found a forum that I can ask questions, being that I only read books & watch youtube... never had formal training in Buddhism or any Buddhist friends. Every temple near me is an hour or more away from my location. I do wish to get there soon to meet the Monks & Nuns and the people of the Sanga, and soak in the atmosphere.

The best in all you do,

BuddhasBuddy :reading:

Welcome friend! Feel free to post questions and new threads! I am available by PM too if you need.

Have a nice time!
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

Stuff I write about things.

Welcome! I grew up in the Reading/Philadelphia area for 20 years before moving here to Texas.

: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
