Namo Buddhaya Dhamma Wheel,

My name is Jonathan Warren, PhD. I'm an epidemiologist in the US, with academic backgrounds in information science and Buddhist studies. I've been a practicing lay Buddhist of various types for about 20 years -- mostly Theravada for the past 15 years or so.

I have a philosophy blog at http://mindstring.net (a.k.a. http://mindstring.wordpress.com). Replies/discussion about what I write there are welcome, but I don't often have much free time or energy, so please be patient with me.

Metta

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
