HI Everyone !

Postby sandun Wanniarachchi » Fri Dec 30, 2016 7:00 am

HEY !

i am sandun and i am from srilanka. i am 15 years old . i am a bit busy with school work these days since i have to face the ordinary level exam next year.not much to say about my personal life because my life history is very short.

though i am a buddhist by birth i started following it very recently. i have a very recent history in meditation which is approximately 8 months. over the last few months i discovered many of meditation methods but i was'nt able to adapt them fully. but after reading "satipatthana direct path to realization by venerable Analayo and heart of buddhist meditation by ven. nyanaponika thera i came to the conclusion that sutta reference was the best and possible method to reach the buddha. i am a member of sutta central and i found some familiar names of my friends who are members of SC. i am interested in studying early buddhist texts in pali,chinese,sanskrit and tibetan. but, i always make sure that i give priority to daily mindfulness and tranquility meditation which helps me to figure things out. :)

Welcome to DW sandun and your conclusion that studying the suttas directly rather than receiving Dhamma that is encumbered by traditional baggage is correct.

To practice is to know your defilements,
