I live in Amsterdam with my wife and twins. I visit the temple at the "sangha metta" every week to meditate. 7 years ago I did a course in mindfullnes. since I have been meditating an a daily basis. not long ago I finally did a retraite of 5 days. in between I read a few books on meditating and buddhism.

Hello Jajas, welcome.

I hope you're time here has been more helpful than confusing.

Hopefully it all becomes clear in the future.

Welcome Jajas!

:anjali:
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
