Hello from Myanmar

Postby lawphotog » Wed Nov 23, 2011 9:56 am

Hi everyone , ..

Lately about 4 months now .. i have been really interested in learning and practicing Buddhism (Dhamma or Buddha teaching i should say). Even though I am a traditional Buddhist as I was born in a buddhist country, I have to admit I haven't really religious. As I have growing numbers of questions in my head about Buddhism and also I want to explore about Buddhism in other buddhist countries, I made a search for a website or forum and i found this one. This forum seems really appealing and I am so excited to talk and share knowledge of Dhamma with people here. And of course, also be friends with anyone here. I was born in Myanmar (Burma) and currently I have been living in England for about 6 years now. Thanks All.

Welcome Laurence!
