Hi I am Saurav from India.

Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.

Hi I am Saurav from India.

Postby indian_buddhist » Sat Apr 26, 2014 2:32 pm

This is a late introduction I am sorry about this. I come from the place where the Buddha taught his teachings - India. I am 30 years old. I was born a Hindu, later became an Atheist(but not materialist) for sometime until about a year back I was introduced to the Dhamma through my personal search. I have gone refuge to the 3 gems - Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha.

I hope to learn from other intelligent folks about Theravada Buddhism (my primary interest of type of Buddhism).

I am a bit persuasive and hope to control it .

Welcome Saurav!

: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
