:namaste: everybody,

I'm new to both this forum and Theravada Buddhism! I seeked refuge on the Duruthu Poya day last week, after serious thought and searching into all the world religions, and finally came to the conclusion that Buddhism was the only one that made sense to me :D Forgive me if I ask lots of questions on this forum :embarassed: !

My name is Jasmine, I'm 17 and am from London, but I currently live with my girlfriend in Wales to do my A levels :)

How about all of you? How long have you been Buddhists, etc? :)

Greetings Jasmine,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha2:

Metta,
Retro. :)
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)


Exalted in mind, just open and clearly aware, the recluse trained in the ways of the sages:
One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7

Hi Jasmine. :hello:

: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
