My name is Chris and I lived in Japan during the time when Buddhism became an interest to me. I studied some Nichiren and then went to Thailand and discovered Mahayana, which became my focus. I am new to all of this, with a very basic understanding of Buddhism. Thanks

Welcome Chris. I'm fairly new as well. There is lots of great info on here. Be sure to look around. And folks have been very helpful.
