Hello

Postby AnthonyR » Thu May 23, 2013 12:03 am

Hello everyone! I've been interested is Buddhism for a number of years. I began meditating about 3 years ago when I began attending a Vietnamese Buddhist Temple and Meditation Center in my home town. I have not been able to practice as regularly as I would like, but I'll be retiring soon, and hopefully I'll have more time to practice then. I've read a few books about Buddhism, but at my age, it's getting harder to retain what I read. The abbot at the afore-mentioned temple is a Vietnamese Buddhist monk who has lived here for 20 years. I've learned a lot from him. I'm looking forward to being a member of this online sangha and learning more about Buddhism.

Welcome aboard! I hope you find all the help you could ever wish for here.

Do you find solace with Vietnamese mahayana or are you just seeking the Buddhist path in general?
