Hello

Postby Yessu » Wed Mar 21, 2012 9:50 pm

Hello everyone,

I had been interested in Buddhism for a while before finding a Master and joining his sect of Chinese Esoteric Buddhism.

Since then I have become increasingly devoted to my practice.

I have also serve as a reservist in the United States Marine Corps.

I came to this forum to find out more about other types of Buddhism and make some friends.

Nice to meet you all.

Welcome Yessu!

: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
