Hello (or as the young say, what up)

Huh....I thought I smelled burning incense somewhere...anyways... ;)

My name is Shinjo (心定*). I am a Shingon Buddhist student.

If you were from E-Sangha, you may remember me as tktru.

It's good to be back on the forums. Let's get the internet dharma wheel rolling again.

Pardon my ignorance, but is Shingon part of Zen?

Catmoon: Shingon is an esoteric sect, I think *not to be confused with Klingon, from Startrek hahahahahahaha :p*

TKTRU: Welcome! I do remember you from the e-Sangha days. Together with Ven. Huifeng, Henry, and others, you always had good answers to my questions. We're lucky to have you. :D

If you've ever wanted to embark on, or are interested in the spiritual journey of the Shikoku Pilgrimage, this is a good place to start.

Welcome Shinjo!

It's cool to have a Shingon Buddhist here. I think it's amazing that other Vajrayana traditions still exist besides the Tibetan ones. I'd like to read some of Kukai's writings sometime. I practice Kagyu Tibetan Buddhism, so I consider Shingon Buddhists to be my Vajrayana brothers and sisters.

Maybe if you make enough noise in the Shingon section, Ven. Eijo might even come and post here.

If I ever visit Japan, seeing Koyasan is my priority!

That would be great! Then Eijo-sensei can get me to quiet down when I'm too loud. :rolling:
