Hello everybody

Postby lotuskaruna » Sat Nov 03, 2012 8:15 am

Hi buddhist friends :hug:

I'm so glad to be here, to read inspiring, important teachings that really make me feel calm and happy. I don't have buddhist friends, my friends and family are catholic or atheist, but they don't even think about espirituality as something important in this life. I guess I always wanted to find some answer for those philosophical questions, maybe not God neither Buddha can give it to me, just myself, through looking deep inside of me. :smile:

Thank you,
May all be happy, well and free :anjali:

Greetings and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Welcome lotuskaruna!

: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

Welcome! Sorry I missed your introduction earlier!
