I'm bilingual. I had the chance to study English in Secondary School along with Spanish as the first language. It's difficult to get Spanish Buddhist literature here. I rely mostly on Buddhist forums, youtube videos and some articles in English to learn more on Buddhism.
I started having an idea about Buddhism when I was a child. My uncle has this Chinese Buddhist book that he only puts on display. The next exposure is when I finished college. I had misconceptions about Buddhism before and an opinion forum made me realize that I was very wrong. I watched Ajahm Brahms youtube videos and it really helped me a lot. Then, Yuttadhammo's channel has been very helpful and educational too.
I also studied different religions too. I studied Islam, Judaism, Christianity (Roman Catholicism) too. However, Buddhism had the greatest impact for me. It did not just help me with my anxiety problem. It changed my outlook in life for the better.
That's great! Are you from Central/South America or Spain?
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.
Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.
His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
