Greetings from the Netherlands

Postby Maarten » Wed Sep 05, 2012 9:05 pm

Hello everyone,

I am Maarten from the Netherlands. I hope to learn a lot here and perhaps make some friends as there is no sangha where I live.

Metta to all!

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

Welcome Maarten!

:anjali:
In sitting meditation stay with that ‘which knows’ everything. Don’t try to go to objects. Let the objects come to you. Try not to react to objects. Whatever arises — greed, aversion, pain, itchiness, metta, likes or dislikes etc. — watch with equanimity, without getting involved, without clinging to it. Stay in the middle path.- Shwe Oo Min Sayadaw
