Hello! This is my first post on this forum, so I thought I'd take the opportunity to introduce myself.
I have been "on the path" since I was about 10 years old and saw the Great Buddha of Kamakura (Japan) and became fascinated by the serene look on the statue of the Master Gotama's face. At various times, I've practiced Mahayana, Vajrayana and now Theravada Buddhism. I believe that all forms are valid, but for the past few years, I have worked from (the most original) source material: the Pali Canon, so I consider Theravada my home now. Most specifically, I follow the Thai Forest Tradition, but I am open to the wisdom of all who practice the Eight Fold Path of the Buddha.
I am particularly interested in the work of Thanissaro Bikkhu (and his teachers, Ajaan Fuang and Ajaan Lee) and particularly appreciate his methods and practices. For me, I think it is very important to follow a teacher and teachings that speak to one and I especially like his style.
Looking forward to learning and sharing here.
Much Metta to all!
