Greetings From A Newbie

Postby Semaj94 » Wed Mar 05, 2014 1:20 pm

Hi all!

I occasionally read through the forums to learn new perspectives and opinions about Theravada, so I thought it was time I joined up! I'm also fairly new to Buddhism, so I'm sure this will give me a chance to learn.

Hopefully, I'm not too much of a nuisance with all my questions! :rofl:

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
