Hi everyone!

I recently became interested in Buddhism, particularly Zen Buddhism.

I've bought a few books:
- Buddhism Plain & Simple
- The Teachings of the Buddha
- Siddhartha

I live in Miami, FL and we have a few Buddhist temples around here, and I'm actually going with a friend of mine to a local temple to take an introductory course to Zen living.

Is there anything you all recommend to read or do?
I come from a very Christian background, so everything is all very new to me.

Hi, Welcome to the board.

Keep an open mind and a positive attitude. Be willing to try. You can't miss.

enjoy...
Thanks to the help of generous sponsors (most of them from DharmaWheel), I'm doing a Vajra Armor (Dorje Kotrab) self-retreat this summer. May the merit be yours!

You will no doubt come across ex-Christians or practicing Christians learning meditation as a way into Christ.
