Hello!

Postby VeganLiz » Sun Jan 23, 2011 6:20 pm

Hello, you can call me VL.

I am originally from the west coast but I recently just moved to Massachusetts. So far I'm really liking the new area.

I used to be quite into Buddhism about five years ago but over the years I drifted more and more away from it. I wouldn't consider myself a Buddhist, while I am interested in Buddhism and Eastern Philosophy. I am an atheist. A curious atheist.

I'm also a student who is studying Philosophy.

I hope to meet some interesting people while I'm here. :)

Welcome VL!

:anjali:
To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

Curious atheists are curious things. In a good way.
