Hello everyone!

Postby Invincible_Summer » Sun Jan 19, 2014 4:50 am

Long time lurker of these forums, but decided to finally register so I can participate in these discussions.

My name is Dan. I'm 25 and am born & raised in British Columbia, Canada. I've been practicing Buddhism in various forms for about 3 years now, mainly in Soto Zen. However, within the past year of my practice, I've developed doubt towards Zen and have been developing a strong affinity for the teachings of Ajahn Chah, Thanissaro Bhikkhu, Ajahn Brahm, and Bhante G. I'm starting to try out more of an anapanasati styles of practice and find it more rewarding than "just sitting."


I'm sure I'll learn a lot from being on these forums! Thanks for reading!

Welcome!

: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
