Re-Intro after moving (to New York)

Postby altar » Mon Feb 22, 2010 4:11 am

Hi everyone,

I introduced myself a few months ago a little after I joined, at the time I lived in Vermont. Anyway now I live in New York City and thought I would re-introduce myself.
So, hello all.

Hi Zach
I hope the move went well!
Cheers

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.

Sutta Nipata 3.725

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 Zach,

Welcome. I live in a NYC as well (that makes 3 of us as far as I know now). Have you found a group to practice/study with yet? Anyways, let me know if you're interested in meeting up with fellow practitioners here in NYC. Mettaya.

Well, PM me when you get a chance. I'd prefer not to put my phone number and other details out there on the inter-webs... :tongue:
