I only feel myself drawn down the Theravada path so wouldn't feel comfortable going to any of the other branches of Buddhism.
Can anybody point me in the direction of an online sangha please? I am very happy travelling the two hour car journey every now and then to visit and drop off my donations but I like to contemplate when I learn something or talk to somebody and it can be quite distracting on a long care journey. It's also an awful lot of fossil fuel to burn just for little old me.
Many thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope somebody can offer some advice.
I did a google.com search about Buddhist London, and it seems that I got a lot of results. London has a lot of public transportation.
I visited Amaravati in England. I read a booklet about monk's on Tudong in England. My reading also indicated that the monks are developing, like more branches, more places for monks to reside.
It is easy to find a monk who speaks English at Amaravati. Maybe you could give them a call, or an Email, of visit there sometime.
