I am a midlife neophyte who doesn't dare to say I am a Buddhist. Although I aspire. I found this path in 2016 when my father was terminally ill.

I have a strong interest in the Pali Canon. If only I could pronounce the words 🤣.

Hello friends!

My name is Asha, from Kerala, India.

Buddhism was predominant in Kerala centuries ago, but not nowadays.
I am raised to be a Hindu. But circumstances led me here. It is really tough to follow 5 precepts here as we cook/eat non-vegetarian food daily and I work at a department store.
Friends and family won't go easy on me if I reveal that i am trying to learn Buddhism. I am a 34 year old married woman and has a daughter.
Thank you

Hello Asha , if one practise the dhamma , no need to declare one is a buddhist . One can say follows what is wholesome , virtuous and righteous .

Many Hinduism teachings can lead one to wholesome state , which is a preliminary step towards liberation .
