Hello, kalyāṇamitta!

My name is Leonid. I'm from Russia. Since childhood I have been interested in spiritual teachings. Became interested in Buddhism in 2000, with the advent of the Internet and the opportunity to study texts. Since 2001, practiced Zen, and in 2011 he moved to Theravada.

I study the Pali Canon and practice meditation. In 2012-2013 8 months lived in a monastery in Sri Lanka being anagarika. I am a supporter of the early texts of Nikaya and Vinaya.

All that is subject to arising is subject to termination, all formations are non-permanent. And that which is impermanent is suffering. Regarding what is impermanent and prone to suffering, one cannot say: "This is mine, I am this, this is my self".

Hello Leonid! I'd love to visit Russia some time. Drive across the length country, to Vladivostok slowly.
Maybe in my next life. :tongue:

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.

Nice to have you here. Welcome :thumbsup:
“For that is false, bhikkhu, which has a deceptive nature, and that is true which has an undeceptive nature—Nibbāna. Therefore a bhikkhu possessing this truth possesses the supreme foundation of truth. For this, bhikkhu, is the supreme noble truth, namely, Nibbāna, which has an undeceptive nature.” MN 140
