What school of Buddhism do you follow?

Postby dyanaprajna2011 » Sat Aug 17, 2013 6:50 pm

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.

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!
