Hi!

Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.

Hi!

Postby seeker242 » Thu Mar 08, 2012 3:15 am

Hi there! My name's John and I live in Florida. :) I've been practicing Buddhism for about 20 years or so and found this forum on the Internets and figured I would register and perhaps participate. I started practicing in a Zen tradition and still do. Although these past few years I've taken an interest in reading the Pali Canon. Wonderful set of texts that is! I really don't differentiate between Theravada, Zen, Tibetan, etc. It's all just "Buddhism" if you ask me. :) So I really don't consider myself to be a "Zen Buddhist" or a "Theravada Buddhist" but just "Buddhist" and that's it. I hope that's ok?! Cheers!

Welcome John! I've been away in India and initially missed your Intro.
Hope you find DhammaWheel a good place to be.
