Hello everyone

Postby zenstudent » Sun Nov 17, 2013 4:21 am

Hello! I came to this forum to help increase my understanding of Buddhism. I am not formally Buddhist, and I have not subscribed to any religion since my childhood. However, during the course of one of my college classes I discovered how much I relate to Buddhism (at a glance).

Thanks for having me, and I hope to learn a lot.

This is our foundation: to have sati, recollection, and sampajañña, self-awareness, whether standing, walking, sitting, or reclining. Whatever arises, just leave it be, don't cling to it. Be it like or dislike, happiness or suffering, doubt or certainty... Don't try to label everything, just know it. See that all the things that arise in the mind are simply sensations. They are transient. They arise, exist and cease. That's all there is to them, they have no self or being, they are neither ''us'' nor ''them.'' They are not worthy of clinging to, any of them. - Ajahn Chah
