Hello there

Postby avii » Wed Aug 28, 2013 12:37 pm

I'm a Theravada Buddhist from Scandinavia, Norway. I'm 46 yrs old male. Work with telecom business. My buddhistinterest is in anapanasati meditation, and to contemplate dhamma as I experience it. Else I try live and practise as a good layman, at least as good as it is possible for me under the conditions I have. I'm open minded, not too big fan of rituals and conventions, but I do have great respect for the ones who are, and participate happily from time to time. Hopefully I will enjoy and grow from the diversity of buddhists this forum represents.

Best whishes to everyone

Avii

Welcome avii!

To practice is to know your defilements,
