Welcome! Do you encounter any difficulties in your practice there? In terms of actual practice or ordering items?

No, absolutly no. I ´d just like to meet other buddhists and maybe a sangha.
Concerning my practice, i meet regularly my master when I come back to Paris and I receive weekly his teaching through skype.

Welcome to Dharma Wheel!
I heard there were quite a few Buddhists there during the better economic times when the UAE was constructing many skyscrapers all over. Many of the workers came from Sri Lanka so for a time the "percentage" of Buddhists in UAE was over 5% which is quite high for a Muslim nation. Now the numbers are probably much lower, though.

Most of the workers are coming from India or Pakistan, christians or muslims.
What I am loking for is maybe a small community or individuals practicing buddhism. I hope somebody living in Abu Dhabi will read this!
