greeting from kuala lumpur

Postby willieteo » Tue Jul 29, 2014 12:08 pm

Dear brothers & sisters of the dhamma,

I m willie from kuala lumpur, malaysia.

In my search buddhism, i have came across - theravada, tibetan, chinese mahayana, zen & science of life.
In my search for meditation, i came across loving meditation and yogi meditation.
I wish to find out which meditation is the most suitable to reach nibbana.

By the way, yogi meditation do not eat meat, garlic, onion and coconut, coffee too. While in buddhist temple in brickfields bodhi vihara monks eats these except new & full moon. Therefore i need further clarification. I m in need of a guru for meditation too.

Regards

Vipassanā meditation is the method to realise nibbāna.

You are fortunate in Malaysia, as you have many able teachers such as U Aggacitta or U Sujiva. (I am sure there are many others too, but I met them both in Burma when I was there in 1979-1980).

In Buddhism, what you eat is not very important, but what you think is crucial. Whatever you eat, do it mindfully and without greed or aversion.

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
