Greetings from Arizona.

Postby echograph » Wed Aug 01, 2012 10:27 pm

Hello everyone.

My name is Nima, im Persian. im a 24 year old man. Im an artist and a designer.

I have always had respect for Buddhist teachings since childhood.
I am not worthy of calling myself a Buddhist; for many reasons, one is my lack of proper knowledge in the teachings
and another is the main reason that im here. Im in search of a pure soul, and at the moment it is not close to that.

I want a mentor. Someone to guide me, teach me, and help me heal. battle my inner impurities and feel worthy of being a human.

Welcome Nima!

This is our foundation: to have sati, recollection, and sampajañña, self-awareness, whether standing, walking, sitting, or reclining. Whatever arises, just leave it be, don't cling to it. Be it like or dislike, happiness or suffering, doubt or certainty. Don't try to label everything, just know it. See that all the things that arise in the mind are simply sensations. They are transient. They arise, exist and cease. That's all there is to them, they have no self or being, they are neither ''us'' nor ''them.'' They are not worthy of clinging to, any of them. - Ajahn Chah

GReetings Nima and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
