- I'm an regular mediator
- I would like to widen my knowledge into Zen and Buddhism
- I'm looking for some answers and some tips that more experience mediators can give.

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

Welcome!
'Buddhistboy' is my username, even though I want to make it perfectly clear that I am not a boy. I am an adult.

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

Interesting username! :D

Pain exists, suffering is optional.
His pain, your gain.
No pain, no gain.
etc., etc.
