Starting Intensive Self Practice
« on: February 25, 2018, 08:59:39 am »
Hello All,

The reason I am interested in Buddhism is to completely overcome my own suffering and to enable me to cope better with all of life.

Without knowing much, I know that I would like to begin an intense self-practice. There aren't any options in my area that I am aware of.

Without knowing much, I would like to be able to meditate for 1 hour daily. I think this would be very beneficial for clearing my mind.

If you can A) recommend a school of buddhism I should study given my goals B) provide recommendations as to how I could go about this alone, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

I don't know if you heard about Amino -- its a futuristic social network, but I am part of the group called Buddhism. Its pretty active and you have teachers and such that check it daily. Amino is a free app you can download on any type of "smart phone".

I have always been into Tibetan Buddhism, but I have been away from any devoted practice for many years. lol

Now I am on the Freedom bandwagon, lol, and I do too, want to get rid of literally every single attachment I have. Kind of like a nun, lol. I am also now more into different kinds of Buddhism. I want to read about everything, lol, optimism, lol. :)

http://www.buddhanet.net/   is the biggest collection of Buddhist content I have ever seen. So much in fact, its overwhelming.

Good Luck!!

Intense self practice is also awesome.
Your request will be answered accordingly. Before I go on into recommendations, you need to understand that your mind has nothing to be cleared.
For Self practice to be beneficial, it also must not be segregated and discriminating the importance matters of worldly, sectarianism and other religions for well beings of planet earth.
For schools of buddhism, it is liken to a hall with many doors to access into the hall. Once accessed, it is the same, without entered into the hall, the doors look different but equally awesome as well.
For schools of buddhism recommendation, we cannot based on laybuddhists, speculation or monks, you ought to based upon buddha in scripture. Thus, according to buddha, in the dharma ending era, pureland method is achievable. Pureland method does not require teacher and you can safely do it alone. Hope you enjoy your practice
