Many greetings to everyone :namaste:

My name's Kristoffer and I'm 24 year old Swedish person (And no, we don't make clocks or chocolate, that's the Swiss :lol:).
I'v been a spiritual seeker since age 13. I started out with Zen as so many others here in the west and have held a deep facination and respect for buddhism ever since. In my later teens I did work for a Christian church and seriously thought of ordination but returned to my buddhist roots some time ago.

As of right now I define myself as a non sectarian Mahayana buddhist without a local Sangha. As with most things I'm bound by two facts controlling my choices of buddhist practice. Cost and availability. My interests lean towards East Asian and Tibetan buddhism. I'm happy to have found this forum and since I'v read a few threads I see an enormous potential for learning. Many bows to all of you fellow brothers and sisters in the dharma. :namaste:

Nice to meet you kihara;

We have some things in common. I also started my spiritual quest at about the age of 13 and became a Zen Buddhist. I was going to become a Zen monk but chickened-out. :lol:
