I am 60 yr old living in london
I visit the london buddhist society and sit with Rinzai sangha
My interest at the moment is in dependant origination and the nature of things.
I have listened to several talks by Bhikku bodhi on these matters which were very helpful.
A book I also find helpful is the four noble truths by Ajahn Sumedo
Anyone want to comment or discuss buddhism or offer any ideas thoughts commentries please reply or contact me

Greetings Costello,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.


In light of your interest in Dependent Origination, I can highly recommend The Law of Dependent Arising (PDF) by Ven. Nanananda.

All the best.

Please start a topic of your interest in Buddhism.
I am happy to contribute my 2 cents.

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
