What a great site!

Postby bodom » Thu Jan 15, 2009 9:24 pm

Im really excited to see a forum that is devoted entirely to the Buddhas "original" teachings. Its great to be here!

:namaste:
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

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

Does the wingèd life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity's sunrise.

It's good to see many familiar faces, is that the right word in cyberpsace?, here. I look forward to having Dhamma discussions and learning more from so many learned participants.
