Welcome to Dhammawheel friend
:anjali:
"And so, because this Teaching is so different from what Westerners are accustomed to, they will try to adapt the Teaching to their own framework. What they need to learn to do is not to adapt the Teaching to their own point of view but to adapt their own point of view to the Teaching. This is called saddhá, or faith, and it means giving oneself to the Teaching even if the Teaching is contrary to one’s own preconceived notions of the way things are."- Ven Bodhesako

Thanks Ben, I will try my best ....the knowledge of many members here is quite intimidating.... !

About me: I've just come back from Shwe OO Min meditation center where U Tejaniya Sayadaw is the meditation Teacher, and I felt (and still do) very enthusiastic about his guidance, that's the reason I've put his website on this forum. He is a very sharp and intelligent Teacher and now that I am back to daily life, I can see even more how his approach is beneficial....

Best wishes,

:anjali:
