Hi from Belgium

Postby hoshin » Thu Aug 25, 2011 6:50 pm

Greetings to everyone...

I'm from Belgium, practising vipassana meditation for some time. I'm more on the practise side, so I'd like to know more about theory. :reading:

See you soon!

Welcome hoshin!

: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

Greetings Hoshin,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha2:

Congratulations on your decision to complement you meditation with Dhamma teachings... the two complement and re-inforce each other well.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

Welcome Hoshin! :group:

A good balance of theory and practice is always helpful.

Are you from Belgium?

I'm practising in the Dhamma Group. This association organise weekly evening sessions in Leuven, Brussels, Liège and Namur. There are also retreats with burmese monks from the Mahasi tradition.

You can visit this page to learn more about it...

Bye!

Well, I live in Belgium. I don't speak French though.

Thanks. That is cool. Hadn't seen that yet. Won't be able to make it to the weekly session, but a retreat is possible.

Making retreats in the Dhamma group is like making retreat in Burma. Heat and wetness excepted :jumping:

Sorry to be so late, but hello :)

If you see any unskillful speech (or other action) from me let me know, so I can learn from it.
