Introducing myself

Postby Ratnagerald » Tue May 28, 2013 2:20 pm

Hi Everybody,

I have been interested in Buddhism for over 40 years and have read extensively but practiced fitfully during that time.
Until recently, I have studied mostly Theravada but with the odd foray into Zen and Tibetan forms and occasionally Nonduality
and Taoism. My current leanings are towards Jodo Shinshu even though I still give modest financial support to a Theravadin monastery in the North East of England. This is the first forum I have joined and am looking forward to exchanging views with you all over the coming weeks.

Gassho,

Ratnagerald
