Hello from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA

Postby nem » Thu Nov 22, 2012 5:38 am

Hello all!

I'm here to hear what you all have to say about the Dhamma and hopefully I can learn and help as needed too. So far, I've really benefited from reading the posts here. I have some background of about a year of daily sutta study and feel my meditation practice is okay at hour sitting sessions and some progress. Learning the Dhamma, has been transformational for me thusfar. I am thankful that the Bhudda illuminated this for us, and wish the best for each of you as well in this practice.
