My name is Luke, I am 18 year old living in Australia; I couldn't say to a point how long I have been practicing and studying various different aspects of buddhism, to a degree it has been present through much of my life, having been born in Singapore with a father who is in Asia for 2 out of 3 weeks since as long as I can recall. Only in the last year and a half have I started practicing seriously (meditating and reading texts for a few hours each day), my life has changed immeasurably since
I am in the process of looking for a teacher;
I have monks that I look up to, reading their essays and listening to their talks, but I find that invariably I will run in to technical difficulties when I try and converse with a Youtube video
Due to school being particularly intense at the moment (beginning the HSC, New South Wales' ranking system for university entry) I don't have the time on my hands to balance visits to any Temples or centres regularly, so I thought I would ask here if there is anyone that would be willing to provide guidance to me/give me their opinion on queries I may have, online.
