Hello there :namaste:

Some of you may remember me as Caz from other places Ive recently purchased a few books on The Theravadin Sutta's such as In the Buddha's words by Bhikkhu Bodhi and the Vissudhimagga, Ive always enjoyed reading the first turning teachings and hope to gain some further context and appreciation of them here in order to expand my knowledge of Buddhadharma :) :namaste:

Welcome Zach!

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 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.”

Greetings Caz,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.


Of the two books you've purchased, definitely start with In The Buddha's Words.


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)
