Hello!

Postby Shanti » Thu May 24, 2012 5:22 am

Hi there. It's great to be here and to meet all of you. I grew up in a very Catholic home for a while with my adopted parents. I studied Buddhism after my nana gave me a book written by His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama. I began to meditate and read a lot of Buddhist texts. My mom is a Buddhist and she's taught me a lot about the dharma. After a lot of study on many world religions, I've found that Buddhism is the best spiritual path for me. It simplifies my life and brings me a lot of peace.

I look forward to getting to know you all.

Welcome Aboard!
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Thank you for this link! I'm still discovering which school suits me best, so I will definitely give that a look.

Thank you all for the welcome. :)
