My "Hello" post

Post by clyde » Mon Mar 19, 2018 6:55 am

Hello.

And hello again as I recognize some of the members of Dharma Wheel and some may remember me from other forums.

I’m 70 years old and have read, studied and practiced Buddhism for almost 50 years, mostly as a ‘solo practitioner’ with an inclination toward the simplicity of Zen and zazen, the penetrating insight of the Tibetan schools, and the Pali suttas and jhana practices of the Theravada/Vipassana schools. For the last 10 years I’ve been a member of a peer-led, non-sectarian Buddhist meditation group. And because the group is non-sectarian, I’ve had the opportunity to sit with a wide variety of Buddhist teachers.

It’s been a while since I actively participated on a forum, so we’ll see what happens (or doesn’t).

Do no harm,
clyde

"To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget." –Arundhati Roy
