Hi from Belgium

Post by hoshin » Thu Aug 25, 2011 6:50 pm

Greetings to everyone...

I'm from Belgium, practising vipassana meditation for some time. I'm more on the practise side, so I'd like to know more about theory. :reading:

See you soon!

Welcome hoshin!

: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 mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

Greetings Hoshin,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha2:

Congratulations on your decision to complement you meditation with Dhamma teachings... the two complement and re-inforce each other well.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Welcome Hoshin! :group:

A good balance of theory and practice is always helpful.

Are you from Belgium?

I'm practising in the Dhamma Group. This association organise weekly evening sessions in Leuven, Brussels, Liège and Namur. There are also retreats with burmese monks from the Mahasi tradition.

You can visit this page to learn more about it...

Bye!

Well, I live in Belgium. I don't speak French though.

Thanks. That is cool. Hadn't seen that yet. Won't be able to make it to the weekly session, but a retreat is possible.

Making retreats in the Dhamma group is like making retreat in Burma. Heat and wetness excepted :jumping:

If you see any unskillful speech (or other action) from me let me know, so I can learn from it.
