Hello from Pennsylvania USA

Post by BuddhasBuddy » Thu Nov 01, 2012 1:16 pm

Hi everyone,
Nice to found a forum that I can ask questions, being that I only read books & watch youtube... never had formal training in Buddhism or any Buddhist friends. Every temple near me is an hour or more away from my location. I do wish to get there soon to meet the Monks & Nuns and the people of the Sanga, and soak in the atmosphere.

The best in all you do,

BuddhasBuddy :reading:

Welcome friend! Feel free to post questions and new threads! I am available by PM too if you need.

Have a nice time!
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
- Lokavipatti Sutta

Stuff I write about things.

Welcome! I grew up in the Reading/Philadelphia area for 20 years before moving here to Texas.

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.

- Ud 3.5

Ultimately, your meditation involves sustaining the knowing, followed by continuous letting go as you experience sense objects through the eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body and mind. It involves just this much and there is no need to make anything more out of it.

- Ajahn Chah
