Studying Buddhism

Postby Ronathon » Fri Feb 15, 2013 6:04 pm

Hello Everyone!

I am currently studying world religions in college and have become drawn to Buddhism. For this reason I have chosen to do my semester project based on an interview with someone who practices Buddhism. If there is anyone on here with some time that would be willing to share a bit about themselves and their beliefs with me I would be so grateful!

Thank you,

Ronathon

I sent a PM to ya, but I'd be happy to. There might be someone more established in the Dhamma than I am, however. You might want to take a few subjects as interviewees!
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
- Lokavipatti Sutta

Stuff I write about things.
