I am trying my damn hardest to get into Buddhism as I have always had a passion for it but it seems to come in phases because as soon as I pick up a book to read about it I'm instantly over whelmed by its depth. I was wondering if there was a temple or monastery I could go on a retreat to. I'm happy to pay whatever is required but would like it be for at 'least' a fortnight. I am genuinely intrigued by the whole thing and sat at home on the internet and reading books doesn't seem to be doing it any justice for me. I don't even know which type of Buddhism I want to practice so I really am in need of some advice.
Where do you live? First thing I would do is start looking to see if there is a Buddhist temple or center near where you live and if there is, go there and check it out.
One should not kill any living being, nor cause it to be killed, nor should one incite any other to kill. Do never injure any being, whether strong or weak, in this entire universe!
