Greetings from China and Canada

Postby jasonfei » Sat Sep 08, 2012 4:04 pm

Hi, everyone!
I am a Budhist from China and will move to Canada (maybe Calgary of Alberta) next year, and I am looking forward to meet Budhist friends locally and internationally.

I started learning Budhism about 8 years ago, first the Mahayana and then the Veranada, and have practiced the Pureland, the Zen, the Goenka Vipassana, and the Thai Action meditation. About 4 years ago, I began to learn psychology, and I consider Budhism is a sort of psychology with the methodology of using self-awareness instead of scientific experiments.

I plan to practice the Action meditation and Anapana to achieve ultimate freedom through years’ systematical exercises of mind. I believe we can support and encourage each other here on the path towards Nirvana, which consists of boring, loneliness and uncertainties.

I don’t have ICQ or MSN account at present, but use a similar software named QQ, and the account number is 13197053, and you are most welcome to make contact.

Metta guys,

Jason

Welcome jasonfei!

: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

Hi, Chris, I also have being in Brisbane in 2004, and began to learn Budhism in UQ, and took a Vipassana course in a small town, I guess the name Pomona. It is really a nice city, nice to meet you :quote: .

Hi Jason,

Interesting. I've done Retreats at Pomona at the Goenka centre. I also studied a few subjects in the Religious Studies department at U.Q. under Dr. Primoz Pecenko (now deceased) and Patrick Kearney.
