Hello and Ayubowan! (May you be blessed with long life!)

Postby chethinie » Tue Jan 21, 2014 10:49 am

I accidently stumbled in to this site while trying to look up something related to Buddhism, just to realize that,there are no accidents in life!!

I have read a couple of treads on the discussions and I think this a great site and a great opportunity to learn, discuss and exchange ideas and experiences with like minded people. I have posted a brief bio in the bio section if you would like to know abit more about me.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank who ever that came up with this site! Thank you very much for giving us an opportunity like this, where we could come together to discuss, learn and exchange Theravada Buddhism related topics and experiences...

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

Greetings and welcome to DW!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

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
