How do you balancing Reading & Practice

Toggle
I am so thankful for all of you and the founder of this forum. 

I am however challenged as I find there are so much information to read and not enough time for all. Currently, I meditate 2-3 hours per day and working to develop jhanas and insights. 

Just find myself wanting to read so much more, 


how do you manage your reading and practice? 

I heard this quote by Yogananda founder of SRF "If you read one hour , then write two hours, think three hours and meditate all the time"

How about to take this "urge to read all the material out there and take them all in" as your object of practice for some time ;-) .

Hi and welcome! I listen to dharma talks while cooking and while travelling and doing laundry, for instance, and prioritize practice over reading.
