Hello from Sweden

Post by VipassanaSwede » Wed Sep 26, 2018 6:24 am

Hello,

New member here.
I live in Stockholm, Sweden. Father, archivist, turning 50 in a couple of years. (I feel like I'm 40, though.)

First got interested in Buddhism, in a very general sense, about twenty years ago.
Started my vipassana meditation practice in 2010, found my sangha here in Stockholm, went to a couple of week-long retreats.

Unfortunately I lost track of it all, I'm not exactly sure why... Became a father, the years passed... Things happen.

Now I feel my inner calling again. Maybe it's because I'm newly separated and going through a rough time, I don't know. Maybe it's my age.

Anyways, it's nice to be a member of Dhamma Wheel. I will mainly be a quiet reader here, won't be posting much, there is so much knowledge here, what can I possibly contribute.

Metta,

:buddha1:

Welcome!

:namaste:
To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With no struggling, no thinking,
the mind, still,
will see cause and effect
vanishing in the Void.
Attached to nothing, letting go:
Know that this is the way
to allay all stress.

- Upasika Kee Nanayan
