Hello and Namaste! - New member (UK)

Postby UDW » Sat Jan 04, 2014 7:49 pm

Hello friends,

My name is Urban Dharmic Warrior (UDW is easier!) and I live in the UK.

I am a Buddhist practicing Dhammakaya Meditation, under the supervision of a Buddhist Monk from Thailand.

I first learned to meditate at a FWBO Centre in the UK, in 1997. I have not practiced constantly since then, but my practice is now full time and sincere.

It's great to be here, and I look forward to chatting with you on the boards.

Welcome!

:namaste:
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
