Introducing myself

Postby sati » Wed Jan 16, 2013 9:43 pm

Hello,

I am happy to be here. Thanks for offering such a useful and inspiring online place.

I have been introduced to Theravada through S.N. Goenka and B.Gunaratana 's books, and I am still a beginner.

with Metta, :smile:

Welcome Aboard Sati!
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Welcome sati!

There is freedom from birth, freedom from becoming, freedom from making, freedom from conditioning. If there were not this freedom from birth, freedom from becoming, freedom from making, freedom from conditioning, then escape from that which is birth, becoming, making, conditioning, would not be known here. -- Ud 80

Greetings,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha2:

Metta,
Retro. :)
"When we transcend one level of truth, the new level becomes what is true for us. The previous one is now false. What one experiences may not be what is experienced by the world in general, but that may well be truer. (Ven. Nanananda)

“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)

Never again...

Welcome Sati!

: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
