Hi from China

Postby Gaoxing » Sun Aug 26, 2012 3:23 pm

My name is suppose to be Gaoxing but I made a mistake when I logged in, it's now Gaoxiang. I can't seem to correct the mistake. :oops:

Anyway, I suppose its not the end of the world. :rules:

Hope to have a good read here if you'll welcome me. :hello:

Welcome! A mod might be able to help you change your name.

Either way, I hope you find a nice community here.
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
- Lokavipatti Sutta

Stuff I write about things.

Welcome Gaoxing!

My name is suppose to be Gaoxing but I made a mistake when I logged in

I'll let my colleagues know and we'll get that fixed for you.

: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

Thanks for all the warm and friendly welcomes.

In Chinese Gaoxing means happy but Gaoxiang almost means 'much craving'. I prefer happy as it is also the name I was given by my Chinese students. I try to teach them English. I'm a South African on contract in China.

Thanks to all of those who offered to fix the name.

I'm certainly impressed by the amount of information available here. :twothumbsup:

Greetings Gaoxing,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

Metta,

Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)
