Hello - and thanks!

Postby AjitaKaput » Tue Oct 12, 2010 6:59 pm

I'm living in Colorado and after 5 or 6 years of light reading and practice (TOE IN WATER), I recently listened to Bhikkhu Boddhi's 10 intro tapes and was soundly knocked into the water. Now I'm reading The Heart of Buddhist Meditation and hope to find some detail on how to filter things into the "buckets of notation" described in the 4 Concentrations. Any suggestions (of ANY sort) are warmly welcomed.

THANKS !!!!

Welcome AK. :group:

As this is the Introduction sub-forum .... why not start a thread on the rest of your post in the General Theravada forum, where it can be explored in more depth?

Hope to see more of your posts.

Hi AK and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Welcome AjitaKaput!

: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
