I'm new here, the name's darryl.

I'm interested in buddhism in general, and would like to explore it more.

Is this entire forum specifically about theravada buddhism?

Hi Darryl
Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
Dhamma Wheel is for anyone who is interested in the Theravada. Our focus is predominantly Theravada.
If you are interested in the various schools of the Mahayana, I recommend our new sister-site: www.dharmawheel.net
If your interest is specifically Zen, then I recommend www.zenforuminternational.com
I hope to 'see' you around here!

If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)
