Hello from New Hampshire, USA

Postby SittingSilent » Wed Dec 05, 2012 11:46 pm

Hi, I'm a 26 year old guy on the autism spectrum finding myself drawn to Buddhism. I've felt this inclination for years and now I'm trying to learn more and become a more serious practitioner. I'm currently reading a book of discourese about the Pali Canon.

Welcome! May you find what you're looking for!

Welcome SittingSilent,

Glad to meet you at here at this forum, I have been busy lately and neglected my sitting, only restarted sitting a week or so ago thanks to a InsightTimer app that I found for my Android phone and after a couple of days the consistency wasn't there again.

May you and all be well and fruitful :namaste:
