Hello from Montréal

Post by Librarian » Wed Dec 28, 2011 6:29 pm

I read this forum for a few month now and I decided to register. I’d like the discussions and the answers provided by the members. There a lot of interesting topics.

More personaly, I’m practicing vipassana meditation (Goenka) since almost 2 years now. I’m practicing at home but I’m looking for a place with Theravada emphasis… Now I found one online I'm also interested in physical one.

Please apologize, there a lot of « I » but it’s for introduction purpose! :-)

Welcome Librarian!

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 mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5

"Dont send the mind outside. Watch the mind right at the mind."

- Ajahn Dune Atulo

To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

Greetings Librarian and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
