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

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

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

Greetings,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha2:

Metta,
Retro. :)
"When we transcend one level of truth, the new level becomes what is true for us. The previous one is now false. What one experiences may not be what is experienced by the world in general, but that may well be truer. (Ven. Nanananda)

“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)

Never again...
