Hello!

Postby Shanti » Thu May 24, 2012 5:22 am

Hi there. It's great to be here and to meet all of you. I grew up in a very Catholic home for a while with my adopted parents. I studied Buddhism after my nana gave me a book written by His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama. I began to meditate and read a lot of Buddhist texts. My mom is a Buddhist and she's taught me a lot about the dharma. After a lot of study on many world religions, I've found that Buddhism is the best spiritual path for me. It simplifies my life and brings me a lot of peace.

I look forward to getting to know you all.

Thank you for this link! I'm still discovering which school suits me best, so I will definitely give that a look.

Thank you all for the welcome. :)
