Simple question: what particular school(s) of Buddhism do you follow? This is my first time setting up a poll here, so hopefully I do ok with it.

I'm interested to find out who here practices what school.

How can you not practice the highest Dharma

The question is: "What school do you follow?"

You cannot answer: "I follow no school". You can answer: "I do not follow any school". ;)

@dp2011 "Tibetan" is not a school of Buddism. Yes, I know what you mean, I'm just being pedantic (again)! :tongue:

I practiced Tibetan Buddhism in the past, but I no longer practice it and I don't want to practice it anymore--so I can't check that box.

I am interested in Zen/Chan, but I don't yet have a teacher--so I can't check that box either, but hopefully in the future I will be able to!
