I'm really excited to be here! I've just recently seriously studying Theravada Buddhism in the past few months before that I came from a western philosophy and Mahayana background. The Theravada tradition appeal to me as its more analytical, which makes it much easier to because of my training in formal logic. My family are fortunate to live right by Wat Dhammagunaram in Layton Utah. I have just started cruising around the forum and I'm very impressed at the caliber of people here. I hope to learn much in this forum and hopefully grow wiser. Any suggestion or advice that someone care to give to a novice practitioner?
