Hello.

I am a 'newcomer', tentatively exploring Buddhism. It is good to have found this forum and to be with you.

Metta,

Pererin

Welcome.
you have had the good chance to fall amongst the friendliest, most helpful and willing bunch of people you could ever want.
I count myself priviledged to be here, and I hope you reap much benefit from your stay here.

*Namaste* and metta.

Greetings pererin,

Lovely to have you here. If there's anything you can think of (especially in your capacity as a 'newcomer') which you think would improve your experience here, please drop a note in the Suggestion Box!

Metta,
