Re: How did you come to Buddhism? (poll)

Well I've been doing meditation off and on since about 1988.. then in the mid 2000's(around 2005) I read "Being Peace" and "Peace is Every Step" by Thich Nhat Hanh and really connected with those books. Oh, and I've been a vegetarian since 2001.

Hello MAXUK, welcome back! I definitely agree with others here that based on your post you're clearly not stupid. Daily Buddhist meditation helps me a ton in my own life and I know it would help you as well, just need to find a good teacher.

Hello Vianney,

Your English looks really good, a few grammatical mistakes but that will happen with a foreign language. The key is to get to where you are understood and can understand others. And clearly you are well on your way to that(if not there already).

Welcome!
