Hello Hello Hello!

Postby Paribbajaka » Fri Jun 01, 2012 1:24 am

Greetings everyone!

I have stalked around on these forums for about a year now and have decided it might be time to finally make an account.

I've been practicing Buddhism for a few years now, having begun with Korean Zen before settling in to Theravada. My primary teacher is a Laotian monk from the forest tradition.

I am looking forward to discussing the Dhamma with you all!

May all beings be happy!

Welcome.

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)

Welcome Paribbajaka!

: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
