Welcome Ann!
Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.
We have a few Scandanavian members here.

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,

Hi Yasodhara,

Welcome! I only recently discovered this site and have already gained alot from it, sure you will too! You probably already know this, but one of the senior monks at Bodhinyana monastery in Western Australia, home of Ajahn Brahmavamso, is a Norwegian: Ajahn Brahmali. I have listened to all his uploaded Dhamma talks and find them exceptionally good - He really impresses me with his knowledge and understanding of the Dhamma (not to mention his astoundingly good English). I know he paid a visit to norway recently and did some talks there. So, this would seem to indicate that there are some good theravada groups operating in Norway. Maybe someone on 'Dhamma wheel' will be able to point you in the right direction of one?

Hi
Welcome to the forum
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.
