Hello from the Netherlands

Postby jmb » Sun Feb 07, 2010 2:11 pm

Hi all, I used to be on e-sangha (before it crashed) and just found out a lot of people from there moved to here.
So, I'm glad to have found Dhamma Wheel!

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

Hi & Welcome to Dhamma Wheel

There is also the sister site of Dharma Wheel http://www.dharmawheel.net/ which is more Mahayana & Vajrayana inclined.
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Hi jmb and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
kind regards

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Greetings,

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)

One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7
