My name is Jake, I am currently 19 years old and living in Perth, Ontario. I came across Buddhism a number of years ago and while the teachings didn't instantly resonate with me, over time they have come to be more and more important to me. I haven't actually attended a monastery yet even though there is a Thai Forest sangha very close to me. But I plan to!
I've joined this forum to further my knowledge of the Dhamma, and hopefully participate in some good discussion!
