Hello from Delaware

Post by epm44 » Sat Oct 07, 2017 1:23 pm

Hello everyone,

My name is Ed and I have been practicing Theravada Buddhism for about a year now. This forum has been a great resource for me especially since I generally have been practicing on my own.I look forward to joining in some of the discussions in the future!

Welcome Ed!

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
