Hello!

Postby Carlossal » Mon Feb 18, 2013 1:14 pm

Hello everyone.

Obviously I am new here so I thought that I'd introduce myself. My name is Carl, I'm 28 and have been reading about Buddhism for about 2 years now. I've also been practicing meditation daily for about the same amount of time. I'm new to Buddhism and am eager to learn all about it.

Hope to talk to you soon!

Welcome Carl!

Welcome Carl!

: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

Thanks for the very warm welcome.

I'm not really up on forums so I'll probably be a bit slow on the uptake. :D
