Greetings, Namaste, Slainte

:yinyang: to your good health, deep wisdom and wild gratitude; to the liberation of freedom and exhalation of peace, salutations and a bow to the god in you as the god in me :yinyang:

I'm a poet and writer - non-fiction narratives for art, banal content for profit -, 29, Edinburgh based. I've been exploring Buddhism on an intellectual and practical level for just over 10 years. Had the pleasure of dallying with some of the counterculture kings and queens through the dubious virtue of online exchange before heading to Samye Ling and her sister organisations for three years of studying with Tibetans, would-be Tibetans, quasi-Tibetans, Saints and Cretans, then off to India to explore the culture my fiancee grew up in.

I'm one half-mad, and have had to rent out the other half to pay rent; life-time student, recalcitrant philosopher and existential apocalypse survivor (some may question this latter claim).

Currently doing my small part to ensure the completion of several media projects at World Dharma Publications.

Curious about the community here, and the information shared. Looking forward to lurking around for a while.

Cretans or cretins? I know that many times they are indistinguishable but... :tongue:

Hi Frog&Lotus (do you have a preference, which one do you want to be?)

That's some resume you got there - hello and welcome!

Hello all, and thanks for your warm welcomes.

I can't even claim to have been lurking, unfortunately, as I've been too involved in various projects and studies. I'll remedy that over the next couple of weeks as I peruse the forum.

Until soon,

Frog
