Hi, My name is kaytan. a 23 years of old man from Iran.
I'm new to theravada and I'm here to learn more.
I first found out about Dhammakaya movement via DMC tv, and then started to search ,and my search still continues.
I hope to have greet times with you during my learning here :)
All I need is the air I breathe and a place to rest my head

Greetings Kaytan and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Sutta Nipata 3.725

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)

One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7

Welcome kaytan!

: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
