Re: Everything seems so much to remember... daily practise?

When I feel confused or unsure what I should focus on, I use the list below to help remind myself of all the different aspects there are to practice and then choose one area to focus on; usually something I'm having difficulty with. ...

Re: What should I contemplate on?

Hi MMK23 Thanks for taking the time to post and share :smile: Sorry, maybe I should have been clearer in my first post. I've been interested in Buddhism for around 5 years and looked at different traditions and forms of meditation. I feel like I've finally found a tradition that sits right with me a...

Re: What should I contemplate on?

Thanks Retro, at least I'm on the right track, I hope. Do you know of a better version you could suggest? (bearing in mind I'm just starting out with the Suttas) Looking at the Upajjhatthana Sutta, I've seen it somewhere else - a Gatha by Thich Nhat Hanh: I am of the nature to grow old. There is no ...

Re: What should I contemplate on?

Thank you for your kind replies. I'm definitely looking for practices on contemplation, and will read the sutta you suggest Retro. I have 'Mindfulness in Plain English', it's an excellent book, and am okay with breathing meditation. Should I also be looking at the 'Satipatthanna Sutta'? (I've just b...

What should I contemplate on?

Hi all I'm a beginner in Vipassana meditation and wondered is there a clear list of what I should contemplate on? I understand simply, that I should consider anicca, dukka, and anatta.

Meditation on the breath leading to insight? Help please!

Hello to all, Although I've been interested in Buddhism for 5 years or so, I've only recently become interested in the Theravada tradition (having followed Tibetan previously). I have also only had a consistent daily sitting meditation practice for 8 months or so. My ignorant question is, is there a...
