Hello from France

Postby Lakota » Wed Sep 05, 2012 9:53 pm

Hello everybody,

I expect to learn more about theravada and also english language with this forum.
It will be a challenge, but also a pleasure to read you here.

Greetings lakota 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

Welcome lakota!

: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

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

Bienvenue Lakota ! (Pour info, j'utilise le même pseudo que sur les forums français au cas où quelqu'un se pose la question).
Please don't hesitate to correct my english if you feel to
