Hello

Post by Nuggets » Fri May 05, 2017 10:36 pm

Hi everyone

I recently discovered the beauty of vipassana meditation after several years dabbling in the Tibetan tradition.

I reside in Geelong (near Melbourne) in Australia.

Nice to meet you all - looking forward to discussing the dhamma with you :smile:

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 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


Ultimately, your meditation involves sustaining the knowing, followed by continuous letting go as you experience sense objects through the eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body and mind. It involves just this much and there is no need to make anything more out of it.

- Ajahn Chah
