Hi Everyone

Postby arijitmitter » Sun Jun 30, 2013 11:59 am

Hi,

My name is Arijit and I stay in Calcutta, India.
For about last 18 months I have felt a strong inner attraction towards Lord Buddha. There are very few Buddhist monasteries in Calcutta and none that are " inviting " to an inquisitive stranger [ none that hold discourses of any kind or explain anything if you ask; they hold daily prayers in evening which public are allowed to attend ].
So I am glad to have found this Forum of like minded individuals. Very glad to be part of this Forum with all of you.

Welcome Arjit! Every good blessing to you! :anjali:
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.
