Hello from Canada

Postby Randolph1809 » Wed Feb 17, 2010 5:13 pm

Hi everyone,

My name is Randy. I've been casually reading about Tibetan Buddhism for a few years, now it seems I am more drawn towards Theravada.

I'm grateful to have found this site, I hope to use it to increase my practice and to contribute to the Sangha.

Nice to meet you everyone!

hi randy,
There is also Dharma Wheel our sister site if you are still interested in Mahayana and Tibetan Buddhism? Link bottom of the page in the middle.
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.
"Others will misconstrue reality based on personal perspectives, firmly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our personal perspectives, nor firmly holding them, but easily discarded."

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
