Hello from the other side

Post by Bazman »

:reading:
I have read a few books on buddhism the last ten years.
The latest being why buddhism is true by Robert Wright
Basically I pretty much accept the non self is true.
I just need to work on meditation.
Any other advice?

Find a teacher.

Find some Buddhism lectures on youtube, watch a bunch of different ones. See if you are interested in some, not in others. Ask about them here.

Do you have dharma centers near you? Look up their online schedule and maybe attend a few classes after researching them a bit first.

The best way to find a Teacher is to ask a person you trust in a setting you trust (online if online, I’m person if in person, etc), about a Teacher they recommend. The best Teachers are generally those that others recommend, from my experience. At least that’s an easy way to find a good one, and also the most reliable.
