Ajahn Chah Facebook page

Post by bodom » Sat Jul 15, 2017 10:24 am

Hi all,

For anyone here who uses Facebook i have created a new page dedicated to the Venerable Ajahn Chah and his teachings. I will be posting quotes and pictures of this great meditation master and going through every available translation online. So if anyone would like a break from the negativity on social media and is a fan of the Venerables teachings please feel free to check it out.

: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.

Thanks Bhante. I followed the page for a while but there only seems to be any activity every few weeks or so. I plan to post daily.

I like to use the images of masters to help focus on meditations.

Thank you, this is a great idea.
The Buddha's path is simple and meant for ordinary people; anyone with goodwill and determination can follow its steps toward freedom of heart and mind
