A forum for beginners and members of other Buddhist traditions to ask questions about Theravāda (The Way of the Elders). Responses require moderator approval before they are visible.
I have been recently researching and trying to fully grasp the vast information of Buddhism. I am obviously a beginner, and I have read several of the other questions and with all the information I am coming across, I'm lost. I am seeking the way to begin the conversion to Buddhism and have no clue where to start. I am seeking any and all advise as to which direction to turn. What is the first book I should purchase, any sites with informative reading to fully grasp and understand this conversition. Also, I am seeking a place in my area to meet others in this path of life to seek a deeper learning and a gathering place. Any advise or suggestions are welcome.
