Hi everyone,

I'm Stuart - with my brand new internet connection. I'm a former librarian of the Buddhist Society in London, and did I mention that I've got an internet connection once again ;)

Welcome stuart.

: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 stuart. Nice to meet you.
That's made wholly possible by the fact that you have internet connection, you know.
And, I might add, a discerningly good choice of on-line sangha websites.

I am sooooo happy - How on earth could I be otherwise?! :D

Greetings Stuart.

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

Metta,
Retro. :)
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)
