Hello everyone, I am new to Buddhism although I have always had what I suppose you would call Buddhist values. I am a married mother of three small children, and I was introduced to Buddhism through the book "Buddhism for Mothers", by Sarah Napthali. The more I read the book, the more I realised how much of Buddhism and it's principles that I had seen and experienced in my own life. The more I became interested not only in how Buddhist teachings could help me be a calmer mother just by applying some 'ideas' but now also as the spritual path that it is.
I am learning more, and I intend to practice Buddhism and all that goes with it, I am very much a beginner though, so please forgive me if I need things explained to me often! From what I gather though, we are all learners every day
So I look forward to getting to know this forum and the people who use it better, and most importantly I look forward to continuing my journey.
