I have become very interested in Theraveda recently and have a lot to learn!

Welcome.
Whatever an enemy might do to an enemy, or a foe to a foe, the ill-directed mind can do to you even worse.

Welcome JohnWB! Where from in LI? I'm in NYC so let me know if you want any recommendations for Theravada groups and viharas on the Island or in the city. Metta!
