General discussion of issues related to Theravada Meditation, e.g. meditation postures, developing a regular sitting practice, skillfully relating to difficulties and hindrances, etc.
An interview with the great Ajahn Sumedho on developing awareness in everyday daily life:An Interview With Ajahn Sumedho : Everyday Path Momentshttp://www.dhammaweb.net/interview/view.php?id=1
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

Thanks for sharing Bodom, it's always refreshing to hear Ajahn Sumedho's teachings. I thought his last two responses were quite profound, he truly is a remarkable being.
