Greetings from Canada

Post by Osaka » Sat Jul 07, 2018 10:27 pm

Hi all,

I've been studying Buddhism and practicing meditation for a few years, used to browse Dhamma Wheel and decided to create an account. I went to Thailand in 2008 and seing buddhist imagery piqued my curiosity and that's what led me on the Path. Been mainly practicing alone with books and online ressources like Amaravati and Cittaviveka websites, but also going to local Zen centers to receive person-to-person instructions from a teacher since there is no Thai tradition monastery in my province of Québec. My main language is french so excuse me if sometimes my english grammar might feel awkward. Looking forward to learn many things on these forums! :hello:

Bienvenue, eh ;)

17. 'In six the world has originated, O Hemavata,' — so said Bhagavat, — 'with six it is intimate, by six the world is afflicted, after having grasped at six.' (168)

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
