Metta and Mudita

Postby santisasana » Sun May 13, 2012 12:48 pm

Namo tassa bhagavato arahato sammāsambuddhassa
Homage to the Exalted One, the Worthy One, free from all mental pollutants, the Perfectly Self-Enligthened One

I recently rediscover this forum and i rejoice to see here fellow Dhamma treaders of the Path from all around the world, striving as much as one can to follow the Buddha's noble teaching. It is very nice to see that. So much suffering in the world and in ourselves..
The forces of adhamma are very strong...
And everyone of us, each time we strive to lit the light of Dhamma in our mind/heart - may it be only a small and tiny candle - participate to strengthen the forces of Dhamma, and build more peace in ourselves and in the world...

Daughter of the Buddha,
Working to free the mind from suffering
Trying my best to claim my genuine inheritance and
Become a true owner of the Sasana

Sending much mettā and muditā to all of you

- a nun

Hello & Welcome Aboard!
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”

Hi Ayya,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

Can you say more about where you ordained and where you are staying?

Welcome Ayya!

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

Welcome Ayya! :anjali:

I too am interested in knowing for how long you are ordained and where you are staying, if you don't mind telling :smile:
It's a big fortune for the members here to have more monks and nuns around, thank you for coming here! :anjali:

Dear Dhamma friends,

Thank you for your greeting.

Monks and nuns are usually more inclined to talk about Dhamma than themselves...
But I understand that you may want to know more about this nun, newly arrived in this forum.

I have been practicing for about 17 years. I was ordained nearly 9 year ago in Burma where I have been staying most of the time - and traveling when necessary.

With much metta
May all beings be free from dangers, happy, healthy. May they be able to take care of the burden of the 5 khanda with joy.

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

Greetings ayya,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel and thank you for the intro note.


Metta & mudita,
Retro. :)
What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)

Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'.
(Snp 3.6)
