Hello everyone

I am interested in Buddhism but admit ignorance. I have read a few books and watched a few documentaries/movies about Buddha and Buddhism, but that's about it. I'm looking for some peace in my life (and on the internet).

Welcome MstChf!

What have you read so far?
Are there some documentaries you want to recommend?

Best regards,

Welcome!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

Welcome MstChf!

: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
