Vitor, from Brazil

Post by Vitor_N » Fri Oct 12, 2018 12:20 pm

Hello fellow Dhamma Wheelers!

I'm Vitor, from Brazil. I am 27 years old and have been working on my graduate studies. I had some contact with Theravada Buddhism through dhamma talks and writings - mostly by Thanissaro Bhikkhu and Ajahn Chah - some years ago. I went through a very tough period in my life during which I stopped studying and meditating (ca. 3/4 years). My interest in Theravada Buddhism has regrown recently and since the city I live in does not have any buddhist communities nor groups as far as I know, I study and practice it by myself. I decided to look for a forum where I could share experiences, learn, and, hopefully, also help others, that's why I am here.

Metta,
:buddha1:

Welcome!

:namaste:
The heart of the path is so simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice.

Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing.

Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this-just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle.

- Ajahn Chah
