Hi,

I've been lurking for a while here and decided to finally join the conversation. I'm an abject beginner in meditation and in the study of Buddhism. I've read many introductory/popular books on Tibetan Buddhism and attended a number of Dharma talks, but have yet to study any of the scripture or commentaries.. I've only recently established a daily practice of shamatha, and overall I've been very half-assedly practicing 'meditation' for about three years. I'm trying to ramp up my practice to a much deeper level of commitment and I'm glad to have found this community.
