Hello, Most of my readings have been from the Zen tradition, and I have practiced on my own for the past few years, as there is no Buddhist center or temple near me. I want to learn more about Theravada Buddhism and its practice; however, I'm having trouble finding reliable sources to help someone like me that doesn't really understand the differences between Zen and Theravada. Some books jump over my head completely, and I need a good place to start. I'd greatly appreciate any suggestions you have. Thank you and peace, Patrick.
