Greetings from China

Postby willp » Sun Feb 14, 2010 3:47 am

Hi Friends. Greetings from beautiful Zhejiang Province, China where I Iive with my wonderful wife and son.
I've been attracted to the Buddha Dhamma for many years but really come unstuck on rebirth. Hoping the accumulated wisdom on this lovely site will help. Look forward to communicating with you.

Greetings,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

Metta,
Retro. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Never again...

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Hi & welcome to Dhamma Wheel
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

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

You know what they say about 'suckers'....
