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.

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
