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:
It’s only meditation when there are two minds:
Knowing-noting mind and observing mind.
If there is only one mind, ‘I’ is always there.
The object is not the dhamma,
The dhamma is the mind
That is being aware.
