Greetings!
Dear friends in dhamma. I've been a Buddhist by birth. However, I became a convinced Buddhist in 2000 when I studied deep into the Buddhist philosophy. Since then, I've been a practitioner. My day begins with the preaches of Sutta and one-hour long meditation. I look forward to active participation in discussions and seek your help to answer questions I may post in the site from time to time.
With metta, Myanu

Greetings Myanu and welcome to DW!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

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

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
