Moïen alleguer!

Postby little_stone » Fri Feb 03, 2012 9:27 pm

Hello Everyone

First of all I have to apologize for my bad English but I'm doing my best and will continue to practise English....

I'm a 29 years old girl who is looking for a quiet place to practise Buddhism. I live in Luxemburg and I work as a secretary.
Since last year I decided to convert to buddhism and it's a amazing decision I made but since a few weeks I'm thinking to change many things in my life, like changing job, friends, house, habits, life etc...... I'm depressive for years, on treatment and therapy and now I got to a point of no return. On sick leave for two weeks and have discussed with my therapist I came to the conclusion that I need a new start. I don't know if it is possible to make a new start but I really wish to make that change with this forum.

big kisses

Welcome :-)
"An important term for meditative absorption is samadhi. We often translate that as concentration, but that can suggest a certain stiffness. Perhaps unification is a better rendition, as samadhi means to bring together. Deep samadhi isn't at all stiff. It's a process of letting go of other things and coming to a unified experience." - Bhikkhu Anālayo

Welcome, little_stone,
You might find the Introductory Resources at a good place to learn more about the Buddhist tradition.
Unfortunately, however, it doesn't seem to have many suggestions in languages other than English. Perhaps Buddhanet has some in your own language?

Welcome little_stone!

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

If we just say it often enough, moin, moïen, mojn, mooi, moi (and similar forms) will soon become international. Good news! :tongue:

Greetings Little Stone and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
Practicing on the path only requires us to place one foot in front of the other.
An exhalation after an inhalation. One step at a time.
Wishing you well on the path of Dhamma

“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

Welcome little stone!!! :hug:
All the world is on fire, All the world is burning, All the world is ablaze, All the world is quaking. That which does not quake or blaze, That to which worldlings do not resort, Where there is no place for Mara:That is where my mind delights. (SN 5.7)

By degrees, little by little,
from moment to moment,
the wise purify themselves,
as a smith purifies silver.
