Hello from Myanmar!

I've actually been on here since 2010 but lost my original intro post and life circumstances have changed such that I should re-introduce myself! I now live in Yangon. I promise I'll come on here a bit more regularly from now on as I've neglected posting on here for ages!

Mingala ba!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Welcome back,
I thought I recognised the name when I saw who posted! How are you in Yangon?

Welcome back householder!

: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
