Hello From Singapore

Post by jollybean » Thu Oct 18, 2012 7:18 am

Hi all,

My name is Jason, and I'm happy to be joining this forum to get to know like-minded, spiritually inclined people like you guys and girls.

It's funny. I don't call myself a buddhist, but some of my greatest inspirations come from learning from masters like Ajahn Mahaboowa and Ajahn Mun. In terms of spiritual practices, I try to follow closely to what they teach. In fact, The Path To Arahantship by Ajahn Mahaboowa has been my guide in life for many years till this day.

Also, Ajahn Chah's Food For The Heart is never far from my side.

I feel life is wonderful for giving us the opportunity to practice and live by the dharma everyday, and that makes me happy and contented. And on doing buddhist practices throughout the years, I've had realizations and experiences that made me realize there's so much more to life than 'the ways of the world' -- how most people choose to live their lives.

The deeper my understanding, the more I realize how living like most people in society will never ever make sense to me... being career-minded, wanting to own everything, wanting to be well-liked, highly looked upon, famous etc. All the while not being aware that death is approaching and that we can't take any of these things with us when the time comes.

What's seen cannot be unseen! :tongue:

Today, I sometimes reflect and wonder life would have been like without buddhism. Well, who knows.

I look forward to knowing each and everyone of you!

Jason

Welcome Jason!

:anjali:
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.
