I hope this message finds everyone well! It's been so long since I logged on here, I thought I may as well introduce myself all over again :)

For those who remember me, grad school is going well and I've recently started studying Sanskrit and Hindi (hope that doesn't make me forget my Pali).

I'm looking forward to getting involved in discussions again very soon!

Welcome back.

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

Welcome Back!
I believe One member here (kare) has said that sanskrit can aid in pali translating, well those are my words recollected from a thread.

but even if that is inaccurate I hope youfind these languages useful to understanding the path.
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!
