Hello from New Zealand :)

Post by Chookidoo » Sun Nov 11, 2018 7:32 pm

Hi I'm Kindu :)

I resonate a lot with the Dhamma teachings of Thai Forest tradition. Love forest monasteries. Been practicing for the last 10 years.
Right now I find Thanissaro Bhikku's teachings so so helpful. Just wondering if there is any other New Zealanders on this forum.
There is a possibility of Thanissaro Bhikku coming to NZ in 2020 and would love to link up with other NZers who find his teachings helpful

Hello Chookidoo, I'm down in Dunedin. Not for too long though, in a year or so I'll be heading north to be near the monastery in the Hutt Valley, or maybe back to Perth to be near the monastery there.
Where are you based?

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.
