Hi All!

Hi all!

Have been a practicing Buddhist for many years and am not too crazy about forums since they become too addictive. I'll probably drop in a few times and hopefully learn and hoping I can be of some help to others understand a few things as well. Then I might disappear if I see I'm posting too much. :tongue:

Thanks David! Theravada is so fundamental, in Mahayana, there are so many mantras and sutras promising fantastic things…I got way too tuckered out and just let it all go-- it all went back to "Focus on breathing in, breathing out"…there's nothing like Anapansati! :heart: :heart: :heart: It's the most relaxing yet focused practice ever devised. It clears up asavas like nothing else.

Hi Mahat and welcome to DW!

Welcome!

: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

Greetings Mahat,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

Metta,

If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7
