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?
Welcome welcome!

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
