Re: Feel of breath and concentration problems

Thank you all for your help and your time! :smile: For the last session I tried to spread the awareness to other parts of my body while still focusing on the breath. Some places are easy but others that have much less connection to the breath or currently not having pressure against them are thus mu...

Feel of breath and concentration problems

Using the breath as the object I have problems with keeping concentration at one spot. On inhalation and exhalation the most prominent spots differ and over time change. Some times I can feel it at the edge of my nostrils, a few breaths later I can't, but I can feel it deeper in the nasal cavity. I ...

Re: Spiritual Progress

Manas, thank you for the reply. I guess I was probably thinking a bit to optimistic about the spread of the teachings and the power of beings to put them to use. It certainly puts a fire under one to start following the path when one has a chance as one never knows what their situation will be like ...

Spiritual Progress

I put it under this one because I am still fairly new and I haven't studied too much of the texts yet so I thought it might fit.

Re: Good reasons to reject Mahayana and follow Theravada

Mahayana has many wrongs and so Theravada. Don't follow the name, follow the truth. You need devotion and being honest more than the need for a teacher. Lets think like this, if someone can guide me, it is good. But even without them (the teachers) I will go alone and seek the goal myself. Do not d...
