Greetings from Canada

Post by Joe33060 » Thu Sep 12, 2013 9:21 pm

Hi my name is Joe I recently move to Montreal from Florida were I spend for many years. I work in medicine for twenty years, also did security work. I am interested in vipassana meditation now. I became Buddhist about eighteen years this was a gradual process I did some research as to what I was comfortable with, and resulted in the Therevada practice . I like to travel I have been southeast Asia many times. I hope to learn more in discussions about the Buddha, Dhamma, Sangha and noble truth also meditation practice.

Welcome Joe!

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.
