Hello folks

Post by jmccoy » Sat Jun 03, 2017 1:07 am

Hi there.

I'm from the Pacific Northwest of the USA. Have been a student of Eastern philosophy for most of my life and finally got into determined sitting / meditation after going through some life changing, eye opening ordeals a couple of years ago which led me to trying out my first Goenka 10-day course. Since then I have been sorting through what's right and best for me personally from the mishmash of systems, influences and "technologies" I have been exposed to. I've settled on Vipassana and Theravada.

This looks like a good forum, thanks for being here. :)

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 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
