Warm greetings from Wyoming

Post by lar307 » Sun Mar 04, 2018 6:47 pm

Hi everyone, just joined the forum after contemplating the idea for a while. Started on the Buddhist path about 25 years ago with a class by S. N. Goenka, but my practice was slow until life gave me a wake-up call through the loss of my wife. For the last nine years that passed since that event I managed to sit daily and recently my meditation seems to start unfolding and ask for ever more time every day. Questions come and go as well, but I plan to post some in this forum looking for other people’s opinions. Thanks for opening this public board!

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

Whaddaya know.
Just today I posted that I might be the only Wyomingite (USA) on DW -- wrong again!

Hello friend, good to see more people joining this forum. I'm also new around here and looking for different perspectives on my thoughts I have on Buddhism.
