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

Greetings Caz,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.


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


Retro. :)
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)

Exalted in mind, just open and clearly aware, the recluse trained in the ways of the sages:
One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7
