I first got introduced to buddhism when i went on a school trip at 9 years old.
Then again at 14 i went to india.
I have allways loved buddism, but never known alot about it and not practiced it.
Now im 24 and im realising that buddism is for me. That its been apart of my life since a kid.
I was christened but never been really religious.
There are things i still dont know alot.
Welcome Ducky! I hope we will be able to answer your questions for you. A word of warning, take everything said here with a large grain of salt (including my warning
With the eye of wisdom we discover a lot of anger in us, any amount of jealousy, resentment, ignorance, desire - mountains of emotion whose existence we would never have suspected in ourselves... We recognize that most of the faults we perceive in others are only the mirror of our own negativity, the reflection of our own disturbed feelings... At the same time, we relieve the world around us of the burden of our own negative judgements."
