greeting from kuala lumpur

Post by willieteo » Tue Jul 29, 2014 12:08 pm

Dear brothers & sisters of the dhamma,

I m willie from kuala lumpur, malaysia.

In my search buddhism, i have came across - theravada, tibetan, chinese mahayana, zen & science of life.
In my search for meditation, i came across loving meditation and yogi meditation.
I wish to find out which meditation is the most suitable to reach nibbana.

By the way, yogi meditation do not eat meat, garlic, onion and coconut, coffee too. While in buddhist temple in brickfields bodhi vihara monks eats these except new & full moon. Therefore i need further clarification. I m in need of a guru for meditation too.

Vipassanā meditation is the method to realise nibbāna.

You are fortunate in Malaysia, as you have many able teachers such as U Aggacitta or U Sujiva. (I am sure there are many others too, but I met them both in Burma when I was there in 1979-1980).

In Buddhism, what you eat is not very important, but what you think is crucial. Whatever you eat, do it mindfully and without greed or aversion.

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."
