Hello from Trier Germany.

Post by Thorshof » Thu Feb 16, 2017 3:54 pm

Hello Everyone.
I started ACT Therapy and Meditation about 7 months ago. This renewed my dormant interest in Buddhism and Insight Meditation that I had about 12 years ago.
So what to say about myself....hmmm? I live in a small village in Germany near the Luxembourg border. I am a U.S. military veteran and retired.
I meditate daily, and agree with the reality of "The 4 Noble Truths" I lean more toward Theravada Buddhism but like Mahayana and the symbology of Vajrayana also. At this stage in my life I am more interested in practice and transformation than religion and belief systems.
I am looking for a local Sangha (that I can drive to) and or a E-Sangha. Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

Peace and Blessings everyone.

Thomas.

Welcome!

:namaste:
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 no struggling, no thinking,
the mind, still,
will see cause and effect
vanishing in the Void.
Attached to nothing, letting go:
Know that this is the way
to allay all stress.

- Upasika Kee Nanayan
