Hello everyone!

Post by Invincible_Summer » Sun Jan 19, 2014 4:50 am

Long time lurker of these forums, but decided to finally register so I can participate in these discussions.

My name is Dan. I'm 25 and am born & raised in British Columbia, Canada. I've been practicing Buddhism in various forms for about 3 years now, mainly in Soto Zen. However, within the past year of my practice, I've developed doubt towards Zen and have been developing a strong affinity for the teachings of Ajahn Chah, Thanissaro Bhikkhu, Ajahn Brahm, and Bhante G. I'm starting to try out more of an anapanasati styles of practice and find it more rewarding than "just sitting."


I'm sure I'll learn a lot from being on these forums! Thanks for reading!

Welcome!

: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.

- Ud 3.5


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