Hello everyone!

Postby dalailemur » Mon Jul 08, 2013 8:28 pm

Very much looking forward to discussing the Dharma with my new virtual sangha! I'm a newbie-ish Buddhist in Northern Ireland. Currently reading around the different aspects of Buddhism and, after about a year, am just starting to get my head around it! I'm a regular at my local centre (NKT, there isn't much choice here, San Francisco it is not!) but am reading both Tibetan (including HH Dalai Lama) and Zen books in order to broaden my understanding.

Great to be here! :twothumbsup:

Greetings! I'm also new here.

No judgment intended but you attend an NKT Sangha and are reading books by HHDL?

I would tend to agree with Flavio.
Please be careful.
I understand there might not be a lot of options where you are but there are plenty of reputable online resources.
Many blessings to you.

Welcome "dalailemur"!

I hope your karma pans out for you soon and you have the opportunity to study with some other groups/traditions too!
