Hi from Sweden!

Postby Brandon » Fri Dec 14, 2012 5:59 am

Hello!

My name is Brandon and I come from Sweden. I'm fairly new to Buddhism, I have read some books and meditated a little bit on and off. I joined this forum because I want to learn more about Theravada Buddhism and find peace in my mind.

I hope I found the right place, I know it is the right Buddhist tradition I have chosen anyway.

Sincerely, Brandon
Brandon
