Hello all at The Dhamma Wheel, my name's Emily and I'm 17 years old
I've been a lay Buddhist (practising) since the age of 10, but I was first exposed at the age of about 8 or 9. I had been a member of (much missed) E-sangha for coming on 6 years (as 'Xonikz') when it went down, and ever since I've been searching for a Buddhist forum (particularly Therevada, as that's the school of thought I follow) for ages!
Despite losing E-sangha, after looking at just a few posts on this forum, I feel like I'm home already, comfortably between like-minded people.
I hope you're all doing ok on your respective journeys, and I can only hope my posts on this forum match the wisdom I've seen already!
